August 6 Prayer 2Pet.1,2Cor.4:6-10,1John3;1
We are His glory here on earth, image bearers of light, hope and grace. His majestic glory is to shine forth in darkness. We are his beloved children and apart from him, we are not our own. One cannot bear an image if it is not there.
Let all the negativity, shame and wrong thinking about yourself and God begin to rise and let it fall far away from you now.
When we look to the cross we see weakness, brokenness and sin. Our struggle is his struggle.
When we look into the face of Christ there is his glory to be magnified and displayed through his resurrection. He chose to bring his life, his glory, his light and plant it in our own bodies. So we are one with Christ in glory, we are members of the glorified Christ!
So let’s look to the cross in faith and see our own weakness, brokenness and sin. Let’s look upward to his glory, as the eyes of Christ are on the Father, his might, his power to overcome. His glory to burst forth like the rising sun through us, his body.
Hold that image in your mind now.
Pause, breathe and Pray
‘O majestic glorious trinity, you who desire to dwell in us, we yield to your image being formed in us.
We are weak and cannot bear your image when we portray our own false image without you.
Touch us now with the fire of your glory.
May we receive your word over us. We are your beloved children, your temple where you shine forth your glory.
May it be so in us, your church this day. May we lay down our own false images and bear only yours .
We look to the cross of Christ and see ourselves there and we look to your glory, who you truly are and see ourselves there with you. Make us attentive to your glory light today and how you want to shine through us.
All glory be to the Father,the Son and the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning.
Shine your light in us!
