This Week's Prayers
Monday, March 27, 2017
(Meditation: I Corinthians 15:55-58)
Almighty and ever merciful God, we buried a close friend today. She brought so much joy into our family's life, and we will miss her. But again we realize that death is but a doorway to You for those who love You. What peace we have knowing that the things we dread most, death and separation, have lost their sting! God of eternal life, hold the members of her family very close. And thank You for the memories of her that will continue to live in our hearts. Amen.

(Meditation: Proverbs 3:5-6)
Give us this day our daily bread." Lord, You taught us to pray for daily bread. But instead, I take daily bread for granted. You taught us to pray for the essentials -- one day at a time, but I still pray for the non-essentials. God, teach me, again, about the simplicity of the life of faith. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen

(Meditation: Luke 9:23-25)
Dear God, I am prone to presumption. I presume that my success is mine alone. I presume that I can get by without You. I presume that You will answer my prayers MY way. I presume that I will be healthy. I presume I can accurately judge others. God, forgive my presumptions, and help me to love You and trust in You, and to be aware always that who I am, and what I have, are blessings from You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: I Corinthians 7:24)
God, how wonderful it would be to get away from responsibility, and not have so many people depend on me. Yet, without that, I wouldn't be happy either, because most of my work is a joy. I think the freedom I really want is not freedom FROM responsibility, but the assurance that You are in charge, and that You are with me. God, forgive my doubt and fear and mistrust. Help me to follow You before I would lead. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Romans 12:2)
God, my heavy heart proves that other things are dearer to me than Your will. I know that whoever tries to save his life shall lose it, so I pray that I may lose my life in Your will, that You may preserve it. God turn my trials into obedience, my worry into yielding, and my controlling into freedom. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
