Here is a little prayer I wrote for you and for me. I can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the unraveling of society in the anti-Christian culture we live in, along with so many other daily distractions that threaten the believer’s focus. When I find myself in a fog, I sit quietly and ask God to realign my thoughts…once again. Maybe you have been here too and need a prayer like this. Blessings to you today.
Lord of heaven and earth,
Free my mind from the cobwebs of lethargy,
complacency and spiritual stupor.
Help me to see You again clearly,
I pray You remind me of the simple
truths I know so well and still
forget each day.
Let me walk in Your footsteps,
as a child trails behind a parent –
trusting and unafraid.
You are Light covered in flesh.
How amazing that Hope met us
in our desperate, hopeless state!
Transform and purify us in joy,
eager to do the good works
You redeemed us for.
Help us recognize grace upon grace today
in thousands of ways,
multi-faceted like a million
diamonds on the jeweled sea.
Jesus is our treasure and delight.
We find God in His rich Word
which feeds the Beloved
like sweet manna –
bread from heaven.
The simplicity of the gospel
is deep seated
in mystery, wisdom, and beauty.
Help us to comprehend the sacred
privilege of salvation
and walk in this hour
with confidence in who we are,
resting in Jesus
our Eternal Sabbath.
Grace upon grace,
