July 28 Prayer
Come away and be in his presence.
Have a conversation here with God.
Ask for help,
Seek wisdom in every situation that you find yourself in.
Give thanks for the new day,
for a new start,
for the grace that is freely available to you.
Breathe in the glorious presence of the One who creates in you a dwelling place for peace.
Let this peace rise up from within
until your whole body is warmed with the fire of God.
Let this fire become a sweet glow upon your face that will carry you throughout the day.
We come with our hands open ready to receive.
We come with worries and let you turn them into wonders.
We come seeking your peace and find it
is in You, Jesus.
It is in You,Jesus who is never alone and who has overcome all of the pressures that we feel.
It is in You,Jesus that all our fears are pushed out and a calm returns where we can breathe freely again.
Oh may we live in your presence in such a way that will cause a glow on our faces to spread and touch others in sadness today.
May we find a well of gratitude and peace within
to give thanks in all things
and call out a blessing over our friends and family,
coworkers and those that serve the public.
May your face shine upon us and give us the courage we need today.
May we live out of your peace and delight looking ahead with joy and not with dread.
For you are with us
and your goodness goes before us!
