Reveal to us what we need to see

Reveal to us

Lord God, our life and our eternity belong to You and to You alone. Open our eyes to see the glimpses of heaven all around us.  Reveal the signs that lead us to the embrace of Your truth.  You stepped into our story, those many years ago, so that the courage of God would be revealed in His Son as proof that God stands beside us throughout every joy and sorrow in this life.  Help us to grab hold of Your promises that grace and forgiveness are real, so that we can have the courage to just show up in this life and stop performing with the crowd.  Don’t let us see just want what we want to see, but expose what we need to see.  We exist in the here and now but You, Lord, have always existed and the doors to Your love have always been open to us through Christ Jesus. We can’t wait for anyone to give us permission to practice our faith.   We just need to live out our faith in Christ, anywhere and anytime. And whether or not the crowd jeers or cheers, we serve only Him today, tomorrow and forever.

Turn Our Eyes Upon You

Lord God, we come here today and pray that You will remove the blinders from our eyes and ears so that Your truth can be revealed to us.   Thank You for “the miracle that something so small and seemingly worthless as printed words, written 2000 years ago, would utterly and completely change our lives. “ (Emily Timbol)  Let Your word reverberate in this room and in our hearts so that the truth of the Gospel would resonate in our lives beyond these walls.   Tune our hearts to be in line with You because Your love inspires us.  Don’t let us be numb to this life or to each other.  Open our eyes to see that there is a child of God deep inside all of us and that child will be the one who will see You face to face.  In a world that gets it wrong so many times, we have You, Lord, and You get us. You understand us because You created us.   You heal our wounds and You take our place at the cross so that we can be free to share our lives and our stories to all for the glory of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
