Chaos to Calm

Pray this prayer with me:

My soul only waits for the Lord. In silence I sit in anticipation for the one who is my rock and my salvation. Draw me out of the chaos of this world and into the calm of your intimacy. I breathe out chaos and breathe in calm; breathe out the chaotic experiences of living in an uncertain world and breathe in the calm of a peace that surpasses all understanding; breathe out chaotic personalities and breathe in the calm of a changeless Christ; breathe out ignorance and breathe in the calm of your wisdom that instructs me; breathe out my will and breathe in thy will be done.

Calm me just as you have calmed the winds and the waves.
Speak to me just as you spoke to the storm.
Touch me in places I’d rather leave untouched.
See me and know what I thought was hidden from you.
Cross my inner threshold so that we are one.
Here I am Lord your servant is listening

In Jesus Name, Amen

Sincere Expression

Dear God,

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that we come today with praise on our lips and thanksgiving in our hearts. Thank you for your unfailing love. Thank you for looking beyond external superficial attributes. Thank you for the gifts that spill from your hand. Thank you for helping us where there was no other help to be found. Thank you for extending grace when we didn’t deserve it and mercy when we deserved judgment.

Empower us to express our gratitude for who you are and what you do by handling our responsibilities without grumbling and complaining; finger pointing and faultfinding. Let our work today be a sincere expression of how we love you.

In Jesus name, Amen

Angels Watchin'

Dear God,

We lift our voices in a prayer of protection as we leave our comfort zones to work and witness in a world that is often hostile to our faith. Watch over us today and forever more.

Give your angels charge to protect, defend and preserve us in all our ways of seeking, sharing and service. Praise God for the angels who encamp all around us. Open our eyes that we may see angels watchin' over me, my Lord! In Jesus name, Amen

We Will Stand

Dear God,

Today we put on the whole armor of God – the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness and the belt of truth. Your word will guide our feet today and the shield of faith will protect us from the fiery darts of the enemy.

After we have done all that is required, we will stand. We will stand still to see the salvation of the Lord. We will stand because you will not suffer our foot to be moved. We will stand in your power and might. We will stand in the confession of our faith. We will stand in your everlasting love that covers a multitude of sins and whose perfection casts out all fear. In Jesus name, Amen.

The Joy of The Lord

“ Dear brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way. Let it be an opportunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.”

James 1: 2-3

Lord, there are times when we must confess that we cannot see troubles “ as an opportunity for joy” especially when we wrestle with the “what ifs” of life. Help us when we wonder what if things will work out; what if we can’t make it through the day; what if the problem continues; what if the check doesn’t clear; what if the prognosis is wrong; what if we can’t make ends meet; what if we can’t stay in business; what if we get paid late; what if it costs too much; what if this plan doesn’t work out or what if the report is false all threaten to rob us of your joy.

Help us to be joyful even when we face disappointments and difficult decisions. Empower us to rise above whatever tries to destroy this joy we have from you. Your joy is the strength of our lives! In Jesus name, Amen

Seek and Ye Shall Find

O Lord our God, chip away at those things that hinder holiness in our lives. Help us today to desire character over cosmetics and commitment over convenience. Help us to seek after a sound soul rather than impressive appearance. It is far too easy for us to see what is on the outside and ignore the substance of the heart or the mind.

Help us to recognize that opportunities are not always so distant in the future but some of them are right in front of us. Equip us with the gifts and skills to take advantage of those opportunities. Empower us to act on them expediently. In your Name, Amen.

If It's Not Too Much To Ask

Lord and Liberator, if it isn’t too much to ask that if the tension on the string of a violin creates a beautiful sound, please use the tension and stress in our lives to create something beautiful. If it isn’t too much to ask, help us to remember to inspire others by what we say and do today. If it isn’t to much to ask help us to see it is impossible to fail, there's nothing impossible to you and it is impossible not to live holy.

In the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit, together let us say, Amen!

Create in Me

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit in me. Create in me a pure mind, a clear conscious and pure motives to serve thee. Create in me a peace that defies the turbulence of the times. Create in me a spirit of surrender so that I can continually resist the urge to grab control of my life. Create in me a joy that overcomes frustration. Creator God, it is in our name I pray today, Amen.

Truth Revealed

Gracious God of unconditional love, reveal the truth you need us to claim about ourselves according to your word. Surround us with your love so that our true selves will come out of hiding, that we may become the persons you have created and redeemed us to be. Cover the unrefined edges in our lives with your grace and mercy.

Be our source of courage so that today and everyday we will desire that your will not ours be done. Let your love light the way through life’s storms and sufferings and guide the way over roadblocks and. In Jesus Name, Amen.

One Another

Empower us to love our neighbors and ourselves as you command. We cannot do this without your help. Give us understanding so that we may love those who do not share our heritage and history, culture or community. Give us the opportunity to network with others to build deeper and better relationships. Give us the grace to love ourselves as you love us with an everlasting love.

May your love crowd out all fear and cover a multitude of our sins. May your love continue to flow with faith and hope to make an unbreakable trinity of power in our lives. In the name of Jesus, Amen

Promised Joys

O Lord, we know that this human life is full of issues we’d rather avoid if we could. Yet you have challenged us to a life of service that promises such great joy that it makes all sacrifices worthwhile.

Forgive us when we fail to believe that nothing is impossible to you. Forgive us when fear eats away the fabric of our faith like a moth in a wool fiber factory. Forgive us when we fail to see your power and presence surrounding us or we fail to count on you to get us through tough times, rough waters and deep valleys. Thank you for being faithful to forgive us of our sins. In Jesus name, Amen

Sunrise Sunset

O Lord, our God you created something out of nothing, called light out of darkness and form out of void. You spoke and the universe appeared. Your breathed into a lump of clay and humankind became a living soul. You continue to cause the sun to rise every morning and still paint the sunset every evening. Help us to see these as signs of your miracles and mercies for us.

Today, help us to be aware of your presence surrounding us. Open our eyes that we may see the new things you are creating in us and for us. Continue to have mercy on us and keep us in your care. In Jesus Name, Amen

Presence and Position

God of opportunity put us in a position to use our gifts to your glory in places that will benefit from what we bring to the table of decision. We want them to be blessed and at the same time appreciate our contributions.

Give us a platform to demonstrate the good and perfect gifts you have given us. Create new avenues of achievement that escalate our potential over our problems. Thank God our potential is greater than our problems.

Grant us a calm spirit and a serenity of the soul that will not stagger at unfair situations. Steady us by your presence that we will not flinch at difficulties or despair. In Jesus name, translate our anxieties into answered prayers that give courage and confidence in the face of any uncertainty. You are our defender and deliverer, in whom we live and move and have our being. Amen.

Sing New Songs!

Lord, we sing to you a new song in a new season. We sing songs today that reflect the transition from barren to bountiful, lack to lush, cold to warm and winter to spring. Help us to sing your praises from the inner chambers of our hearts, the depth of our souls, the sacred corridors of our spirits and from the cloistered spaces of our consciousness.

Sing God is doing a new thing. Praise ye the Lord! Amen!

Blessed Mothers

"Blessed be all mothers
Who have come into our lives
Whose kindness, care and loving
Remain with us to guide.

Your inspiration in us
Made us strive in every way
Especially to remember
Helping others makes our day.

Mothers, this little tribute
Flows directly from my heart
You are so loved and cherished
Invaluable, one and all, you are."

Harmony, Holiness and Health

Lord you know us better than anyone else. Search all of our motives, test and try the secret places of our souls, bring to light any darkness that may lurk within and lead us in the way of everlasting life. Take control of our bodies. Purge from us laziness and all unworthy self-indulgence so that they do not hinder but help the perfection of our spirit. Take control of our will that we may be one with you so that body and soul no longer fight against each other but live in harmony, holiness and health.

Help us to rise this day with a fresh resolve to live the truth of your word. Enlarge our minds and open wide the doors of our hearts so that we may love as you love our neighbors as well as and our haters. In your precious name, Amen

Delight Yourselves

O God, we delight ourselves in lifting up our hearts in praise and thanksgiving for another day. We take refuge in you in these uncertain and baffling times. Rain, wind, floods, car bombs volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, wars and rumor of wars conspire to shake our confidence and faith. You are our true security. Strengthen us by your word read and proclaimed and by the decisions we make in your holy presence.

Deliver us from being so caught up in the trivia of life that we fail to see what new things you are doing or fail to engage in eternal enterprise. Amen

Shower Us

"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:2

Most holy and gracious Father, who turns the shadow of night into the glory of new dawning, shower us with your mercy that we may rejoice and be glad all the day. Lift the light of your countenance upon us, calm our troubled thoughts, and guide our feet into the way of peace. Let your strength be more than sufficient to meet and manage our weakness. Let your guidance lead us into all truth and action. Help us in this moment of our lives to be your witnesses as we have received power from the Holy Spirit. In your name, Amen.
