September 13 Prayer
‘We are the Lords,
Whether we live or die’ Rom.14:7-9
We belong to a greater being, the One who holds all things together
The One who sees and hears our hearts
So why fear my friend?
He has this whole situation under his hands.
We are called to bend low and rise high.
Look for the Creator's face that shines on ours.
Behind these closed in skies there is a bright blue waiting to break forth.
Beyond the blazing fires and charged stumps of forests
There will be new growth to spring up.
Let us not grow weary in our prayers,
For He hears and the whole earth groans and cries for redemption.
Let us join in with their cry and believe with hope and confidence we are all the Lords.
O Great God and Creator, You who are full of compassion and grace we cry out for your redemption of the earth.
We cry out for mercy, wisdom and protection.
We ask for you to restore and heal our land.
Protect and provide for those that are in the trenches to help put out these raging fires.
May we look for your grace all around us and lift up those in need.
There is a power so much greater than we know and see that our hearts cry out for .
It is your loving presence that we desire and your mercy to triumph over judgment.
Your presence brings to us revelation so our eyes may see the higher way.
Keep our souls firmly planted in You and our prayers continually offered up from the earth before you.
We belong to You, heart and mind,
night and day, light and life,
all is yours.
So we surrender all to honor you.
We receive the faith to persevere and always believe your goodness will prevail.
Peace be to you.
