and all dying glorified by his risen life.

Dear God,

You are present at all times and in all places.

There is nothing hidden from you.

All knowledge is laid bare in your presence.

Yet many things are hidden from our understanding.

There is much confusion and anxiety in our world.

Help us Lord to let go and embrace divine mystery.

Teach us to be patient as we wait upon your revelation.

Bless us, that we might let go of control and trust you.

Give us grace to believe in what we cannot see.

We confess that we believe and trust in you.

Thank You, Lord, for being there for me and hearing my prayers.

Father, we want to thank You.

For giving us the gift of Your Son, Jesus.
And in return we want to give You all that we have.

Lord God, we thank You.
Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.
For giving Jesus to us.

And we can say when we are weak, "I am strong".
Because You promised.
Your strength will be perfect in our weakness.

And for every financial need we have.
We can say, "I am rich".
Because You promised to provide all of our needs.
According to Your riches and glory.

By Christ Jesus, we say it together.
And now let the weak say, "I am strong".
Let the poor say, "I am rich".
Because of what the Lord has done for us.

We give You thanks.
Give thanks.

a prayer for unity


Father,

We come before You thinking about the holiday season that is coming quickly. For some it is a joyful time, for some a hard time, for some a painful time. For most it is all of those things. You know each celebration, hardship, and hurt we carry. 

Lord, we know you have given us family and they are sinful people, just like us. Sin creates division between us, which makes times of gathering all the more challenging. Open our eyes, Lord, to see the places of hurt in others, to know when it's time to step back in order to guard our hearts from sin, and the wisdom to know what to engage with and what not to engage with.

Remind us, Lord, that unity is not uniformity. That we can be and believe and think differently than those we spend Thanksgiving with, and still love each other. But we can only do this in your strength, with humility and compassion. May we not repay insult with insult, but each speak truth and blessing. Also, show us Lord when we need to keep quiet. May we stand in the truth that you fight our battles for us.

Amen

...be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. (1 Peter 3:9)

Behold, Lord, an empty vessel that needs to be filled. My Lord, fill it.

I am weak in the faith; strengthen me.

I am cold in love; warm me and make me fervent, that my love may go out to my neighbor.

I do not have a strong and firm faith; at times I doubt and am unable to trust you altogether. O Lord, help me. Strengthen my faith and trust in you.

In you I have sealed the treasure of all I have.

I am poor; you are rich and came to be merciful to the poor.

I am a sinner; you are upright.

With me, there is an abundance of sin; in you is the fullness of righteousness.

Therefore I will will remain with you, of whom I can receive, but to whom I may not give.

for patience in times of change



God of the seasons, there is a time for everything; there is a time for dying and a time for rising. We need courage to enter into the transformation process.

God of autumn, the trees are saying goodbye to their green, letting go of what has been. We, too, have our moments of surrender, with all their insecurity and risk. Help us to let go when we need to do so.

God of fallen leaves lying in colored patterns on the ground, our lives have their own patterns. As we see the patterns of our own growth, may we learn from them.

God of misty days and harvest moon nights, there is always the dimension of mystery and wonder in our lives. We always need to recognize your power-filled presence. May we gain strength from this.

God of harvest wagons and fields of ripened grain, many gifts of growth lie within the season of our surrender. We must wait for harvest in faith and hope. Grant us patience when we do not see the blessings.

God of geese going south for another season, your wisdom enables us to know what needs to be left behind and what needs to be carried into the future. We yearn for insight and vision.

God of flowers touched with frost and windows wearing white designs, may your love keep our hearts from growing cold in the empty seasons.

God of life, you believe in us, you enrich us, you entrust us with the freedom to choose life. For all this, we are grateful.

a prayer to walk humbly

Father,

I must admit, I'm not a fan of being humble. But I am also not a fan of when my pride gets out of control. All day I can proclaim that You require us to "act justly" and to "love mercy" ... but if I'm honest God, I cannot do those things unless I am also walking humbly with You.

I thank you for Your hesed love for me, the only kind of love that enables me to fight the sin of my pride so that I can walk humbly with You. 

 Lord, remind me that in my own strength to act justly and to love mercy ends up being for my own gain, and not for Your glory. 

Teach me to desire a humble walk with You. Turn my heart toward a place of surrender that shows Your face, Your love, Your character, to each person I encounter.

Amen.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.

     And what does the Lord require of you?

To act justly and to love mercy

    and to walk humbly with your God. (Micah 6:8)

the wisdom of patience


Father,

I thank You that You are Lord of the unknown.  I thank you that nothing is a surprise to You. I pray for those who are facing the unknown: unknown medical problems, unknown situations, puzzling circumstances, that You will give patience, give clarity, show us the way through the problem. But most of all, help us to trust You until the problem is resolved.

Help all of Your people, in big things or in small, to learn to wait for Your timing. Give us the patience and trust in You necessary to deal with these waiting periods. And help us to deal in a calm and deliberate way with the things we need to deal with during the wait.

In Jesus' Name,

a prayer for giving our burdens to God


 

"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves;from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death." - Psalm 68:19-20

Heavenly Father,

What a promise you've made, what a hope we have, and what a God you are. Thank you for being the kind of Father who hears our burdens - as opposed to minimizing them. To know that you bear our burdens each day enables us to be vulnerable and honest with how we feel, and that allows us to lay them at your feet. Instead of wearing us down and wearing us out, our burdens become something we can entrust to you. 

You are the God who saves us - not just from separation from you but also saving us from the burden of our present realities that overwhelm us. Struggles in relationship, work, money, health... Lord, you are with us in each one of them. Protect us from unwise counsel that may medicate us in our pain, but actually moves us farther away from you and simply ignores the reality of what we must deal with.

Father, some of us are fearful, fretful, even rage-full over the political landscape of our country and the shifts to callousness in our culture. Lift those burdens from our hearts as you remind us that the throne of heaven is presently occupied (Rev. 4), that Jesus is currently the ruler of the kings of the earth (Rev. 1:5) and that nothing and no one can alter your plans (Is. 14:27; Eccles. 3:14).

Father, forgive us when we take back the burden of our guilt, even though Jesus has exhausted it; free us when we surrender yet again to the burden of our shame, even though Jesus has broken it. 

Rescue us when we assume sovereignty and take on what you never intended us to carry. 

Give us the grace to live and to love YOUR glory, not ours.

Amen

I’m not asking that you take us out of the world.

I’m praying not only for us but also for those who will one day believe.

Help us to become one heart and one mind.

Place your TRUST solely in the LORD.

Are you WOUNDED?

Seek God so He can bring HEALING to your soul.

Are you BOUND up in sin?

Fall at His Feet and cry out for FORGIVENESS and begin to experience true FREEDOM.

Are you LONELY?

Fill that void with Jesus…

Truly, the answer to any problem we have or face is Jesus…

He is the REMEDY for all that besets us. For all that threatens to destroy us. For all that rises up against us.

Look up.

Seek the heart of God.

Keep your eyes fixed on the One who WAS, and IS, and IS TO COME. 

Christ wants to be ALL things to ALL people at ALL times…

Seek His face. And be forever changed.




Amen
