January 13 Prayer
The sea roars
cries out all night long
Awakens the dawn
I can see the swells far out
Upon the waters
I hear the cries of all those that mourn
All of those that are weary and worn down.
‘Bless the Lord O my soul,
God, my God, how great you are!’
Jesus, carries all of our sorrow
for he too
was overwhelmed with sorrow
to the point of death. Mat.26
O How he knows,
when he spoke the word of blessing over all who mourn
He surrendered his will to the spirit
His spirit is the comforter
His will brings life where there is pain and suffering
He knows and will help those who are tested, Heb.2:18
Let us be the place where his spirit may come forth to pray for healing
as he prayed in the garden and grieved for the whole world.
‘Lord, we come with heavy hearts and worn out souls
For all those who face death daily tending to the sick.
May your higher will be done on the earth
Renew us with your strength and power
Your greatness for all to be seen
May we fix our eyes on what you are creating in our midst
With hope and without fear
May we be a part of comforting others and
releasing their pain to you through our prayers.
We breathe in your spirit that brings forth life
and exhale a renewal
Of the earth.
Your will be done and
May your kingdom come
Breathe upon us this day,
like the mighty waves that are coming to the shore.
Heal us and renew us we pray!
Bring comfort and hope to all that mourn.
“When you send forth your spirit they are created and you renew the face of the earth.” Ps.104:30
