Earn.Save.Give.
Sep 08, 2019

Generous Creator,

You are the origin of all that I have and all that is. You are the source of life, love, wisdom and true joy. Help me to find these things in you. Remove the distractions and temptations that keep me from focusing on what matters most. Enable me to earn all I can, that I might be able to adequately provide for those who depend upon me. Help me to save all I can, that I might live comfortably and have enough. Empower me to give all I can so that your Church will live more fully into our mission of making disciples and transforming the world—one day, one issue and one person at a time. Use Community United Methodist Church to make a real difference in the world and show me the way to take a step up and do my part.

Amen.

Animating Faith: Pixar Illuminates Scripture
Jun 30, 2019

Loving Creator,

Before I drew my first breath, you knew me, formed me and claimed me as your own. I yearn for my life to matter. I want to honor and glorify you. Animate my faith, that I might awaken to the continuing, creative work of your Spirit in my heart. Help me to further the mission of Jesus and make the world a better place. Together with the church, enable me to live and proclaim the truth:

“God loves everyone. So do we. No exceptions.”

May it be so.

Amen.

Spring/Summer 2019
May 26, 2019

God of Grace,

As spring gives way to summer, I am reminded of your never-ending desire to gift me with newness of life, abundant blessings and an ongoing relationship with Christ. Help me to cherish and make the most of each day, which includes prioritizing time with you. Break through and even change my opinions, hopes and plans, that my heart and mind might better align with yours. May your dreams become a reality through me and through your church, I pray.

Amen.

The Story: Under Construction
Apr 28, 2019

God of Wonder,

I offer my praise and gratitude for your gift of forgiveness and the promise of resurrection. In this season of Easter, use me to bring signs of your hope and new life to the people around me. Break through any resistance I might have to the work of your Spirit in my life. Help me to bloom as a disciple of Christ and take an active role in building the Kingdom of God on earth. In Jesus’ name I pray.     

Amen.

The Story: The Heart of the Story
Mar 17, 2019

God of the Incarnation,

You came to live among your creation, teaching your truths, modeling compassion and offering the gift of salvation. As one inclined to walk in darkness, I thank you for birthing your light in my life. Compel me to love and care for my neighbors the way you do. Break through my study of Scripture, helping me to lean in when I come across something in the text that doesn’t sit right with me, or someone whose viewpoint differs from my own. Remind me that new understandings, new expressions of life and resurrection are always possible. You are the heart of my story and the beat of my heart.

Amen.
