June 9 Prayer
“The spirit gives life
and the ministry of the spirit comes in glory”
Who he is in fullness through Jesus,
He has placed in us.
The law written in our hearts is freedom
and in this place we become His glory.
As we look to Jesus and love him with all our hearts
we then will reflect the very glory of God to the world.
Pause to ponder the place where you are with this.
‘Oh God, we are so humbled by this gift of grace given to us.
How can we reflect your glory when we are broken down,
full of ourselves,
full of judgments, rules and constraints?
Forgive us for placing rules and shoulds
upon ourselves and others that we can never live up to.
We freely receive again the work of grace by your spirit in us.
Come with your glory to overshadow all of the restrictive bonds
All the walls we have erected that hold us back from being true to who you have made us.
We welcome the power of your spirit in our lives to set us free.
May our faith always be demonstrated by love
to overlook the shortcomings of others.
May we look at each other and ourselves
through the eyes of Christ’s sacrificial love.
We will tend to your spirit of glory within us today
and live whole lives reflecting your beauty.
In Jesus' glorious name we pray.
