July 1 Prayer
“ Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream.” Amos 5
Bless the Lord of righteousness and exalt the kings of ages!
The psalmist prays.
Who is this king of glory, the Lord strong and mighty?
Take a breath, a deep breath and feel all the judgments and wrongs flow far from you as you exhale.
Breathe in The God of love, rightness and mercy like an ever flowing stream.
Stay here a while....
We pray ,
“”Lord, we sometimes are confused about your righteousness and justice in the world.
We long for everything to be put right and pray for peace and harmony in our world but see so very little of it around us.
You tell us that you are the lord of righteousness and mercy and you will turn toward those whose hearts and souls are right with you.
So here we are asking you to examine our hearts. This is a vulnerable place to be standing, yet we know that your love and mercy is waiting for us, for all who turn back to you.
We confess our judgments towards others close to us and those we do not even know. Give us merciful hearts and the ability to discern what we allow to come into the gates of our souls. What is right and just and true we receive from you.
Thank you, O wonderful and faithful Father , Holy Spirit who leads us into the waterfall of your grace.
May we be filled today with your everflowing stream of righteousness towards all.
In the beautiful name of Jesus we proclaim your goodness.”
