January 29 Prayer-
Do you remember those days after you were enlightened,
when the light came on
and your heart opened wide?
Do you remember that feeling of
the grace your received after suffering a great loss?
Do you remember when your faith grew so strong and you
saw the hand of God move mountains…?
You were there arm and arm with others
in the trenches,
those that were suffering just like you…?
So wherever you find your self today
be encouraged to not shrink back.
Do not waste your sorrows,
Do not throw away your courage
but choose the better and more lasting possession-
The way of blessing;
A pure heart that chooses the will of God,
trusting like a child,
brave and bold,
knowing you are always safe in the loving
arms of a loving Father-
Show compassion and understanding
with those that are going through struggles,
for you know what it is like..
Call upon your remembrance now of
God’s goodness to you in your life-
‘Thank you, gracious God
for you have met me where I was before
and you meet me where I am now-
I remember the light when it came and
you strengthened me.
I call upon the courage you gave me then
to live from a pure and trusting heart...
May I be an encouragement to those in the trenches.
To those in the dark places
and hold up a lantern of hope -
To comfort others with the comfort I
May we all have an increased confidence
to stick it out and not shrink back in fear
but hold fast to the promised
completion of Your plan…
Bring your kingdom order of love and redemption
on the earth!
Help us all to choose that which is the better
and more lasting way.
