Great Provider, “every good and perfect gift comes from You” (James 1:17). We thank You Lord for each moment from our first cry to our final breath. Bring us to a new way of understanding grace and love. Wrap our minds around, “a new awareness, discovery and consciousness that grace is already living inside of us” (Rev. Ed Bacon) and that in each moment we become a new creation because of Jesus Christ.
Untie the knots in our minds and hearts that keep us from experiencing God’s love in the here and now, because we cannot hold onto anything that once was or never was. We are, however, held by the constant love of God that frees us to let go of all earthly things and allows us to follow the path that leads to salvation and eternal life.
Your sacrifice on the cross and triumph from the grave frees us from the prison of our own false thoughts. “Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the One who hears it and not in the one who says it” (Max Lucado) then we have faith that these prayers will make a difference.
