This Week's Prayers
Monday, November 24, 2014
(Meditation: I Timothy 6:7-10)
Dear God, money, health, success and being in control mean too much to me. I cling to them. It scares me even to THINK about losing them. If I could drop these addictions, what would my life be like? Would I feel scared and alone, or would I feel free? Would I be a misfit, or would I be a new, whole person, with more confidence? Would I be irresponsible, or would I be MORE responsive? God, dare I give up my addictions, and turn them over to You? In Jesus' name. Amen

(Meditation: John 14:25-27)
God, I'm amazed at what happens when I spend time with You. In this quiet time, You expand my vision and deepen my sense of wonder. I know myself better. I have new insights into problems. I have focus, and balance, and harmony. I understand more about life, and more about You. "Mold me and make me after Your will, while I am waiting, yielded and still." Thank You, God, for giving me so much of Yourself. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Philippians 1:9-11)
Almighty God, You make all things new (Rev 21:5). How should I change to be made new? Help me to distinguish between what is good and timeless, and what is superficial and empty. Which family values and traditions are worth holding onto, and which are shallow and selfish? What is genuine and true about my relationships at work, and what is false? Help me to discern what is truly important. God, help me to cast-off the evil in my life, and to cling to the things that YOU value. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 95:2-5)
God, on this Thanksgiving Day, our hearts overflow with gratitude and love for our family, for their love for each other, and for their love for You. We are thankful for our friends who are loyal and steadfast. We are thankful for our work that energizes us, for our home that is our refuge, for our country that stands for freedom and justice, for our church, and for our faith in You. God, our life is a horn of plenty. May every blessing remind us of those who don't have what we enjoy. May this bountiful and beautiful Thanksgiving dinner remind us of those who are hungry. May those sitting around this table remind us that there are those who are alone and lonely. May our work remind us of those who are unemployed. May our freedom remind us of those who sacrifice to keep us free. May our good health remind us of those who are sick or disabled. May our faith remind us of those who do not know You. Grant, O Lord, that our thanksgiving to You will manifest itself in compassion and love, in sharing the gospel, and in giving and serving. In the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Isaiah 64:8)
God, when I pray with a yielded heart, following Your will is no longer fighting against my own will. It is simply letting go . . . emptying myself to You . . . trusting You . . . yielding to You. When I do this, I realize that prayer is not about me, but about You. You are the Potter, I am the clay. O God, thank You for Your loving, caring, all-sufficient will. In Jesus' name. Amen.
