This Week's Prayers
Monday, August 31, 2015
(Meditation: I John 4:9-11)
God, one sign of love is a smile. It spreads joy. It spreads love. And when I smile, I feel better, too. God, give me a smile that comes from knowing that You love me . . . a smile that reflects my gratitude . . . a smile that reflects the peace that passes understanding . . . a smile that radiates Your love. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Revelation 21:4)
God, I pray for those who grieve the loss of loved ones. Comfort them when the "why" questions aren't answered, and pain clutches their hearts. Hold them close when they watch other, intact, families, and envy grips their hearts. God, soothe their cycle of questions with a growing reliance upon You. Dry their tears, and use their grief to build compassion for others. Ease their pain by bringing their families closer together. Deepen their calm. Let them rest in You, for You make all things work together for good to them who trust in You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Romans 15:13)
God, when I am depressed I turn to You. And in You, I know that the power of sin is broken, and I know that you are still God, and I am not. I know that there IS hope, not because I am an optimist, but because You are in control! You know how it all ends, and it ends with You, eternally. I praise You, my God and my King. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Ephesians 5:28-31)
Dear God, bless our marriage. Help us to renew our vows to love each other as husband and wife . . . to live together in the covenant of marriage . . . to comfort each other . . . to honor each other . . . to love each other in sickness and in health . . . and, forsaking all others, to be faithful as long as we both shall live. Through Jesus Christ our lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Psalm 38: 17-18)
God, I am a sinner. This sounds right, but generalities don't often convict. Help me to be specific. My sin of omission, which I confess now, is ______________. It bothers me, and I know it bothers You. My sin of commission, which I confess now, is _______________. It is one You would have me stop. God, when I'm truthful, my list is specific, my need is great, and my strength is weak. Forgive my generalities. Help me be specific. In Jesus' name. Amen.
