This Week's Prayers
Monday, February 8, 2016
(Meditation: Matthew 6:34)
God, I pray for those who are getting older and who know younger people are waiting in the wings for their jobs. I pray for those who are running out of energy . . . for those who are running out of ideas . . . for those who are running out of excuses . . . and for those who are running out of time. God, restore to them the joy of their salvation. Renew their minds and restore a right spirit within them. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: I John 3:24)
God, sometime when I pray, it's truly heart-to-heart. I feel Your holiness. I sense Your love. I feel in accord with what You want. I sense Your will, and I want to do it. My own wants recede. God, it's like being hidden in Your heart, swept by the tide of Your love, wanting Your will to be done. God, thank You for Your nearness. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 29:1-2)
Bless the Lord, O my soul. May I praise You in the morning, glorify You at noon, serve and acclaim You all the day through, and thank You at day's end. My soul proclaims my Love for You, O God, for You are wondrous and merciful. May I exalt Your name through the whole day. God, I praise You in the highest. I bless Your holy name. Your love is endless. Your grace is sufficient. Your goodness is unending. Your gift of life is eternal. Hear my prayer of praise. In Jesus' name, Amen.

(Meditation: I Corinthians 5:1-12)
God forgive my shallow prayers of thanksgiving. I often thank You for my blessings without sharing my blessings. In my mind's eye, I picture my blessings as health in my body, money in my bank account, and gourmet food on my table. Rarely do I thank You for the blessing of having compassion for others or for being repentant. God, may my prayers never stop at thanksgiving without sharing, health without serving, or having without giving. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 46:10)
God, I get more phone calls than I did a year ago . . . more text messages than a year ago . . . more catalogs and junk mail . . . more trivial e-mails . . . and more messages on my pager. My information overload is spiraling out of control. God, help me to simplify and learn to say no. Help me follow YOUR agenda for my life. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
