November 2 Prayer
Remember the ones that have gone before us and rejoice.
“We are surrounded with a great cloud of witnesses to the life and faith,
Throw off whatever hinders you, every wound and sin that slows you down.
There is a path marked out for you, follow the one who is ahead and fix your gaze on Jesus, so you do not grow weary and lose heart.” Heb.12:1-3
Life is short and we can easily miss it if we let the clatter and clutter crowd out the hope of God that does not disappoint. Rom. 5:5
That is where we have a path, a way appointed for us to follow that is uniquely our own. Our life response is the legacy we leave behind.
Oh Lord help us to live and follow you on the way that leads us to hope.
Let our eyes be fixed on learning to watch where you are moving in our midst and allow our hearts to be filled with the love of God.
We receive your Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
We remember that You, Jesus endures the cross, suffering the shame and humiliation so we can come out of disgrace and enter grace.
May we hold this freedom as the way to surrender our wills to your will.
May we wait with expectancy that your hope in us will fulfill your promise in our lives.
No matter the outcome of these days ahead we place our complete trust in you to accomplish your will on earth.
Everything is yours, do with it what you will.
Lead us on the way of hope with joy that you are in control.
