August 30 Prayer
Believe, hope, peace is here.
Restoration is in the making.
Paul tells us to grieve not as those without hope
for we live as the resurrected Christ.
The earth is quite fragile right now,
held in captivity from our own foolishness
and lack of reverence.
Let us turn our eyes around now and take a look at the creator
lifted high above all this mess.
Shake off the doom and gloom, return
To Be still and humbly
Show reverence with hope.
‘May we seek You above all others.
We have trusted in some that have let us down,
but have hope in only One.
Restore and revive our life again in You.
May your sovereign Spirit be upon us and
let the truth reign in us over our human condition.
I ask where have I not been reverent in my actions and in my attitude
toward this sacred ground I am standing on?
Where have I stepped away from recognizing God
in my own limitations to strive in making things my own way?
Where have I excluded and judged others?
When have I let an opportunity to love and show grace pass me by?
Lord, call me deeper now into your grace to be still.
I pray and declare an end to all war right here inside of me,
So that you will smash every weapon and bring peace to all nations.
May we be a part of your greater plan.
Today we place our hope in the resurrected
Let our lives reflect your glory by changing us
moment by moment.
We surrender to your life in us to make amends
and bring your peace.
1 Cor.15:20-24, Ps. 85:6-9
