For Your Glory

Holy God,
we humbly come before You
to praise Your holy name;
to lay our petitions at Your feet,
and to confess our sins.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
receive our praise,
hear our petitions
and grant us forgiveness,
so that,
our lives may be refreshed and strengthened
to live for Your glory.
Send now Your Holy Spirit,
oh God,
to fill us and lead us along our way.
In Jesus Name we pray,

Holy God

Holy God,

As the full moon brightens the night sky,
may Your Word shine (brighter) in my life.

As the morning dew covers the ground,
may Your Holy Spirit cover me (more completely).

As the sun rises high in the sky,
may Your majesty rise (higher).

As Your Son has risen from the grave,
may I, too, rise with him.

Holy God,

You are
and mighty to save.

And so I worship You,

Holy God.

In Jesus name, Amen.

Spread the Wealth

Father God, may we bask in the joy and glory of our lives being hidden with Christ. But may we not hide from others. May this hidden-ness not be an excuse to keep to ourselves and simply wait for the coming of our Lord. Rather, may the joy of being hidden with Christ lead us to spread the wealth with others so people, through faith, may be rich towards God.

Lord in Your mercy…


Holy God, I pray for an awakening in this country. Send your Holy Spirit to powerfully use us to shine the light of Your love. May we not see people only skin deep, but may we look on people with the eyes of Christ. May we not build walls but open the gates to one another. May we not get defensive but go on the offensive; striving to outdo one another in showing love.

Lord in Your mercy…


My Treasure

A prayer of the day I wrote for August 14 that I just felt like sharing today:

Creator God, holy Father, You are awesome and mighty, full of grace and truth. You are power and yet approachable as a child to their father. You are mighty and strong, our great champion who has won the victory over death through Jesus Christ. May we always treasure you as we cling tightly to the promises that cling even more tightly to us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord we pray, Amen.

Light in Darkness

God of power and might,
There is much in this life that causes me to be at a loss for words.
At times I feel like hiding in a cave until Jesus returns.
At times is seems easier to just be quiet
and acquiesce to the demands of this world.
At times I wonder,
just wonder

But nothing is a surprise to you.
Jesus still reigns.
The hope of the resurrection is real.
Strengthen us,
Oh God,
and may Your light shine the way in our lives
as we navigate the chaos and evil in this world.
May we be examples;
beacons of hope.
May we bring glory to Your most holy name.

I pray this in the name Jesus Christ our Lord,
who reigns forever and ever,

To Follow

Holy God,
through Jesus Christ You call us to action,
as You call us to follow.
But road is not easy
and the task is daunting.
We are tempted to give up
or take shortcuts so not to offend people.

May we never do so.
May we always be faithful.

Grant us Your Spirit
that we may fix our gaze upon Jesus,
so much so,
that his glory is reflected in the world
through our faithfulness.
May our actions shed light
in a dark world
may our words speak peace and hope.

You call us to follow,
may we do so now without hesitation.
All praise, glory and honor
be unto You,
Creator God,
through Christ Jesus our Lord,
