Write into the margins

Write into the margins

Almighty One, thank You for continually working thousands of miracles in and around us even if we are only aware of a few.   Mature our faith in You so that we can function on a more spiritual level instead of a worldly one.

Write into the margins of our minds so that we can trust in Your timing, rely on Your truth and experience Your presence.   Remind us, that because of Your Son, we are not defined by our past, but are redefined by Your grace, love and forgiveness.

Lord, give us the strength to rise up from complacency and let us be extensions of You, of “justice, truth and love…because whatever we put into life is what we will get out of it” (Rev. Ed Bacon).

We are weak but God is strong

We are weak but God is strong

Almighty God, shine Your light into the darkness of the unknown.   Help us to embrace Your plans and lay down ours. We may not understand how everything will turn out, but we pray for the wisdom to trust You. Forgive us for our unawareness of the constant presence of Your Holy Spirit. Forgive us for living a life that shuts You out. Show us, that no matter where we are or what we’ve done, that You are always for us and You are always with us.

“We may have weaknesses, but God has strength. We may have sin, but God has Grace.   We may fail but God remains ever faithful” (God’s not Dead), and “the pain that we’ve been feeling, can’t compare to the joy that’s coming” (Romans 8:18).

Thank You Lord!!!

Thank You Lord!!!

Almighty One, thank You for every second of life that You give.   Thank You for Your grace and mercy. Thank You for forgiving our mistakes and making us new. Lead us into Your vision and take us away from the uninspired and routine. Make us new and vibrant messengers of the Gospel and Your eternal truth so that every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Your Son, Jesus Christ, is Lord of all. We pray all these things in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Interrupt the chaos

Interrupt the chaos

Lord, thank You for the gift of another year gone by.   Lead us into the next chapter of life that leads us to discover the truth of God’s love. Reveal to us our part in Your story.   Forgive our mistakes. Give us the wisdom to forgive others and the strength to forgive ourselves.   Interrupt the chaos of negativity and allow us to be, “mirrors whose brightness is (entirely) derived from the sun that shines upon us” (C.S. Lewis).

 

 

 

 

Be our strength. Be our shelter. Be our Friend. Be the truth that we see in each and every person that we meet because, “what draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth” (C.S. Lewis) that we are all beloved children of God.
