April 19 Prayer
‘This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.’
Sounds too simple.
We want to work harder, create something to make a mark in the world.
We want the magnificent!
We are Looking for Jesus
and he is creating something eternal within.
‘Do not seek to do the things that will not last but seek that which will last forever.’
He gives to us
Bread from heaven to feed our souls
Our work is to believe and receive and then give it away to feed the hungry.
Pause and see God's creative hands making something new within you.
New faith, hope and love bursting forth from your deep hunger.
He is the magnificent, the wonder and poetry we desire to read and he is the Poet creating in us a living message.
Respond to him now in prayer;
‘Lord, I believe in You, I receive your work in me.
Create something beautiful that will last within me and create through me this day.
May my hands look to give and create out of the grace I have received from you.
Let me be a living poem, a unique expression of your creativity.
May I offer hope to the hopeless world that is clinging onto things that will not last.
I pray for the young that are in doubt and despair that the world is failing them.
May they find you Jesus and believe.
Renew the face of the earth with a new faith in God who gives his all and saves us all.
Fill us anew with that which will last for eternity.’
John 6:22-29, Eph.2:10
