This Week's Prayers
Monday, October 20, 2014
(Meditation: Luke 18:6-8)
O God, revenge against those who have wronged us would be sweet. But Your Word tells us, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord" and, "Blessed are the peacemakers." God, teach us the difference between justice and revenge. Remove from us the anger that wants to hurt others more than they hurt us. Help us to forgive even the worst of sinners, for we know our own tendencies toward evil. We know how much You have forgiven in our own lives, through Your sacrifice on the Cross. Help us to seek justice for all mankind. Infuse our nation with a love of justice that restores freedom, and a merciful heart that restores love. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Exodus 20:1-6)
God, I pray for those who confuse what they DO with who they ARE . . . for those who tie their self-worth to their work . . . for those who think their work is their life. God, help them to know that they belong to You, and have no other gods before You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: I Timothy 6:17-19)
God, everything we have is Yours. We are only stewards of what You have entrusted to us. Guide us as we consider what to do with the money we have. Guide us as we consider our own needs, the needs of our church, the needs of the poor and those who suffer, the need to spread the gospel, the needs of schools and charities, and the need to save for college and for retirement. Help us to know what portion of our money we should allocate to each of these important needs. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: I Corinthians 13)
God, though I work hard and am successful, and have not love, its rewards are thin and shallow. Though I have the power to influence others, and have not love, it is hollow and empty. "Though I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor, and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing." God, in everything I do, fill me with love . . . forgiving love . . . joyful love . . . serving love. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Genesis 2:24)
God, thank you for romantic getaways . . . for times together, alone . . . for holding hands and recalling memories . . . for candlelight dinners . . . for the voices of our children on the telephone . . . for sharing our deepest feelings . . . for laughing and crying, together . . . for rest and quiet, together. God, thank You for our love, our marriage, our family. Most of all, thank you for YOUR love. In Jesus' name. Amen.
