September 26 Prayer
‘There is a river— it’s streams delight the people of God, the holy dwelling place of the Most High.
God is within her; she will not be toppled. God will help her when the morning dawns.”
There is a river within, a constantly flowing stream, a holy dwelling place to live. There He is in the midst. In the raging, stormy sea, the quaking earth.
He is over all the nations. He causes wars to cease, breaks down our weapons, snaps the bows and spears that shoot arrows of hate and fear.
“ Be still and know that I am God, exalted over all the earth!”
“Surrender your anxiety! Stop your fighting, Be silent and cease your striving, and
you will see that I am God.” vs.10
There is a river that flows within. He is within us, the river of life flow and peace--
Here I am Lord, weak and out of control, striving against the gale force winds.
I surrender to your current, to be in the stream of your design, so I may be able to take the twists and turns of the river within.
Wherever it may take me, I will be still and remain inside the boat and allow you to guide me there.
For you are all around me and above me and below me.
I surrender my weapons, my fighting, my striving to change what I cannot change.
I look for You in everything I encounter this day and find your life flow of peace within.
We all pray for the storms and wars to cease.
Open the eyes of the nations to see that You are God and the only source of life and peace.
May we flow in your river today so that others may find you here.
