January 25 Prayer
Rain and more rain
the clouds are beholden
the air is brisk
my soul and body does rest
on the inside
This day, a new day to hear God’s voice
deep within you
Not to call you to do more, change more,
to be enough
Today is a day to focus solely on the king
and his name is the name you are called by
to be purified by
A name that is authority, safety, belonging
You have his name
The anointed one to heal and proclaim grace to all who believe
‘Blessed are the pure in heart’
who are able to recognize their need for God
their need for grace and to be held in love's embrace
this is the good news we can freely share with others
I ask this question, am I secure enough in my belovedness in God,
and in His grace to be brave enough to reveal my impure heart
in need of
Am I willing to cry out David’s prayer ‘create in me a pure clean heart’
and believe that His spirit will do so?
Pause a moment to sit with these questions.
Name the condition of your own heart that it is in right now.
See the loving hands of God cleansing, reshaping and forming a new heart in you.
This is what He wants to do for everyone.
For you and for me..
We come to a place of need and pray for those in need.
‘Jesus, In your beautiful name we pray.
Show us this blessed way to walk in purity of heart,
with your heart for others that walk a lonely, self sufficient way.
Let us see your hands reshaping our world and let us see
the power of your redemption for all of creation.
May we be compelled by your love to share your good news with others.
May we receive this in our hearts in a fresh new way.
To have confidence through faith in the riches of Christ to be revealed
through his name.
‘Blessed be the name of our Lord now and forever.’
