This Week's Prayers
Monday, July 18, 2016
(Meditation: I Peter 1:6-9)
God, I don't want to suffer. Do You bring trials to see if I will trust You? Do You test me to see if I will try to solve my problems without You? Do You use my suffering to deepen my faith and build my character? God, whatever You put before me, I will live in the gentle peace of Your will because I love You and trust You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: II Peter: 1-3)
God, enlarge the areas of conversion in my life. Show me the unrepentant and unyielded areas of my life and grant me the grace to turn them over to You, one at a time. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 62:5-6)
Dear God, sometimes, when my energy and enthusiasm need to be at their highest, I want to get away. I don't have anything left to give to anybody. I want to run and hide and hope nobody finds me. I want to be protected. God, when I feel this way, I'm glad I can flee to You. I'm glad You are a mighty fortress. I'm glad I can rest in Your everlasting arms. I'm glad I can hear once again the good news of Your love and forgiveness and strength. Thank you, God. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Titus 2:6-9)
Almighty God, I want to be a good parent. I want my children to attend good schools and camps. I want them to travel and have the latest computer programs. I want them to have beautiful clothes and the good things of life. But God, most of all, I want them to love You. Grant them a saving faith and keep them on the path of discipleship. And God, I know that children are better copycats than listeners, so help me to be a good example of the faith and values I want so much for them. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 46:10-11)
God, my mind is in constant motion. My thoughts are like bumper-cars, colliding and bouncing, turning and starting again. The competing voices weave a tangled web that blocks my awareness of You. God, it is only when I am still that I can hear Your still small voice. The high-pitched hums of competing voices stop at last, and peace slowly softens my knotted soul. Thank You God, for breaking through the nettle of my distractions and for making me whole. In Jesus' name. Amen.
