This Week's Prayers
Monday, July 28, 2014
(Meditation: Psalm 66:1-4)
God, sunset and sunrise speak of Your Son's death and resurrection. The afternoon sky glows with jet-stream crosses. The red, setting sun bleeds to death slowly, quietly, until it is buried by the dark horizon. Reflected light changes patterns and colors, and then the earth is dark. But soon, the new day appears, announced by pre-dawn light. A new day rises, full with new promises and new beginnings. God, thank You for Jesus' death and resurrection. May this day be filled with glorifying and enjoying You. "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!" Amen.

(Meditation: Philippians 4:6-7)
God, life seems so fractured when I lose perspective, and lose sight of You. Life seems so tragic when I lose perspective, and lose sight of You. Life seems so confusing when I lose perspective, and lose sight of You. Life seems so fearful when I lose perspective, and lose sight of You. God, help me to keep my eyes on You, and to follow You. Amen.

(Meditation: Matthew 28:20)
Merciful God, flood my mind with Your Word, my eyes with Your light, my guilt with Your forgiveness, my will with Your providence, my fears with Your calm, my anxiety with Your peace, my indifference with Your compassion, my emptiness with Your fullness, and my heart with Your love. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Matthew 5:9)
God, grant peace in the Middle East. May "shalom" and "salaam" take root in the hearts of those whose long heritage is conflict. Untie the knots of hatred, and anger, and fear. End the cycle of suicide bombing and retaliation. Grant the people of the Middle East a new tolerance and peace, forgiveness and trust, and love and joy. I pray in the name of the Prince of Peace. Amen.

(Meditation: Galatians 6:8)
God, I pray for those who buy more, but enjoy it less . . . for those whose wealth expands, but whose hearts contract . . . for those with deeper pockets, but shallower relationships . . . for those with bigger homes, but smaller hearts . . . for those with more pride, and less humility. God, forgive them. Free them from the tyranny of possessions. Grant them the joy of being possessed by Your love. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
