January 19 Prayer
‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
for they will be satisfied.’
We all want to see things made right again.
Discontent and dissatisfaction draw us to a hunger and thirst for what could be.
What should be.
What is righteousness and how can the world ever be right again?
I see the waves far out in the sea rolling in.
One at a time and a hope begins to rise up within me for us all.
As this year began I had two consecutive dreams of very large tidal waves coming into the shore but I was not afraid.
I only wanted others to come to the shore and look, watch and wait with me.
To set all things right- inline with what is true.
To turn right everything that is wrong.
It is not seeking to be right all the time
it is seeking the One who is our right.
Jesus tells us to take and eat of Him.
Jesus is the bread of life, he is our righteousness,
He will make everything right again as intended in the beginning.
We become a part of the showbread the priest laid out before the presence of God.
Let us present our daily hunger for what
needs to be made right before his presence now.
Lord, we pray as we give to you our hunger and thirst for more.
May we be a part of your creative power in making all things new.
We are not always right in our thinking so
change us into your likeness,
to love what you love, and seek what you seek.
Untangle the knots in our world and in
our hearts to see the cord we are to hold unto.
Fill us with a longing for more and let us never lose the hope of your promise.
You will fill the whole earth with your glory.
Empower our faith to believe in your righteousness to come.
May your beauty be seen by all and bring their hunger to you.
We will hold fast inline with the promise given.
Let the tide of your blessing roll in.
In Jesus name we pray,
