July 20 Prayer
‘Let something happen in me today
Something more and bigger than me
Let me walk on dry ground like Moses did
Let me stretch out my hands in power.
In the stretching out of my hands
I release the strongholds that have enslaved me.
In the stretching out I feel an openness,
A saying yes to fullness,
In the emptiness.
Stretch out unto the dry ground
Take the next step
Knowing Jesus is there with you
Stretched out for you
on the cross
Stretched out to hold you there with him
In his unfailing love that leads
Stretched out into a joy
that comes in the hidden places
Power and might to say no to every
stretched out from distress
with his authority to speak out;
Do not fear,
you are safe,
you are healed,
you are set free!
Today we pray,
Stretch us out
into all of your being,
to be where you are.
Take us closer to your heart
that we may sing songs of joy
about your unfailing love.
That we may be unfailing in love
