A Sunday Prayer

Lord, You are mighty and worthy of praise!

We exalt Your name above all names as we worship You in all Your majestic splendor.

Hallowed be Your name;

May Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

We thank You, O Lord, for your bountiful provision;

We are grateful for Your love, Your kindness, Your generosity, and Your grace.

Forgive us, Father, for where and when we fall short. 

Keep us from wandering and falling astray.

Lead us from temptation, so that we may not sin against You.

Direct our paths, make them straight. 

Help us do that which pleases You and brings You honor, glory, and praise.

You are God and God alone.

No one is greater than You. 

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.

31 Days of Praise | Day 16 God is Our Victory

But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.

2 Corinthians 2:14

Praise be to God because in Him we have victory! Nothing can stand against us. God’s plan will prevail as He works in and through us. The good news of Jesus will continue to advance through territory and through time, until all those who will be redeemed receive salvation.  God is our Jehovah-Nissi (The Lord My Banner).

hymnal-468126_1920

As believers, we can live triumphantly because Christ has overcome all that we shall ever face. In Him, we have victory. We can live life abundantly, expressing love and joy as we claim the peace accompanying His promise.

What a great God we serve! Lift your Banner High!

Hallelujah!

Morning Prayer 11 | Peace

Morning Prayer

The Apostle Paul follows up love and joy with peace.  Peace is an inner quietness marked by a freedom of worry. Peace is an elusive state in our modern, hyper-connected world. There’s so much to worry and fret over that having our souls rest in stillness, free from anxiety, seems like an insurmountable task.

Something is always on. Disturbances threaten our tranquility at every turn. I think our restlessness spurns our yearning for spiritual growth. It’s what causes us to go looking for a better way. Amid all the chaos, can I remain calm, content within the realm of space I occupy? Yes, I believe that it is possible.

When we lack peace our minds run-on forever, never resting. Our brain jumps from one thought to the next, sometimes juggling multiple thoughts at once. Our heads feel like they are going to explode. Our lives are overwrought with tension, stress, busyness, and pressure, both at work and at home. Can you imagine your life free of worry, anxiety, and fear?

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV)

You can know peace. It is possible to reduce the worries, anxieties, and fears that keep you up at night and wear you out during the day. By nurturing a deepening personal relationship with the Lord qualities like love, joy, and peace can manifest themselves in us and be expressed in our daily interactions with those we encounter in the world. We can become known for our loving, joyous, and peaceful spirit.

May the peace of God go with you today!
