May My Heart Seek You

20180731_124238

As I look to you in prayer Lord God, I acknowledge

that You are my provider,

supplying all my needs.

So may my heart seek You

for other people

for the sick,

for those hurting

or caught in the web

of bitterness.

Please work in our lives Lord,

and set us free.

Amen.

In Every Space and Time

20170929_145613

You are there with me Lord God, in every space

and time, in every path chosen

as I walk the way,

in the path you’ve given me.

And You know the mistakes,

so help me to be guided

having prayed,

having opened my heart

to You Lord,

saying yes

to Your will.

Faith for What I Cannot See

20180707_153851

May I trust in You Lord God today, seeing beyond

the voting booth,

beyond what I can see

with my natural eyes,

even seeing beyond the rubble,

and hurt in our world.

I ask for faith to keep going,

regardless of what I see

and feel. Give me faith

from above

Heavenly Father.

Amen.

Bring Healing to Our Nation

20180929_153925

Lord God, I pray you would bring healing to our nation,

remove the hatred by moving our hearts

towards You,

towards one another.

May brown people not be rejected,

and may white people

not be afraid.

May we overcome the giant

of hatred and remove him

from our land.

Help us Lord God,

amen.

     

Note: Racism did not begin with this election. Unfortunately it has been in our country a long time.

I remember growing up in an area where Confederate flags were popular, and some people that were different from us, were beaten up.

This must stop. We must choose leaders that foster cooperation and respect.

Peace.

They Are Precious in His Sight

20180914_125431

God please guide me as I pray for the poor,

forgive us for rejecting

our neighbors

because they don’t carry our flag

or speak our language.

Cleanse us from fear,

instead Lord God

I pray we would all

turn again

to Your Scriptures

and once again

love each one

as ourselves.

Forgive us.

Note: I am reminded of a children’s song I grew up with, it goes:

“….red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight…..” Do you remember?

It is still true today.
