June 4 Prayer
“I will praise the Lord, oh my soul, I will praise the Lord of my life.” Ps.146
In every situation
The impossible and the dismal,
in the daunting future and
challenges to come.
Where do I put my gaze, is where my hope will be found.
When I am hopeless then I must attend to what is new emerging in life’s changing patterns.
Do not fear change, nor difficulties for they will have their way in you if you let them.
God will meet us in the impossible situations and give us the strength and peace we need in the moment.
“God is the power of the future.” Ilia Delio
This is where I place my gaze and find my hope.
This is how I praise by giving thanks for his presence in me.
‘Lord, I praise you and I gaze upon your beauty through the eyes of prayer.
In the stillness and the beginning in again I see that in every challenge You are there.
Help me to attend to what I see as a new pattern for me to embrace.
Help me to lean into the new ways through an openness of my spirit.
To believe you in the impossible and to always have hope in the future.
For you are the power of my future and our future so we as your people can praise you and trust you in every situation.
Praise and glory be to God, creator of change who is forever faithful.
May we always seek you and always praise you through our ceaseless prayers.
