Breakthrough Prayers

Apr 19, 2020

God of Unending Surprises,

This life is a tapestry of moments and memories woven together, and I long to be a weaver of love. Today I pray that you would unravel my biases. Unravel my assumptions. Unravel whatever it is that keeps me from you. And as you do, clear space in my heart for your word and will for my life.

I am here and I am listening.

Reckless Love
Mar 01, 2020

Holy God,

You are the author of all life and have claimed me as your own. In this season of Lent, help my every assumption, action and conversation to begin with love. Bring people and experiences into my life that will expand my understanding of what it means to love and accept those who are different from me. I want to emulate Christ in all I say and do, so break through my heart and instill in me a desire to love indiscriminately and with reckless abandon. In Jesus’ name I pray.

Jagged Edges: Piecing Together the Brokenness in Our Lives
Jan 12, 2020

Creator God,

You are the author of all life; the one who calls all that you create good. Yet, there are times when I may not feel good about my life or myself. There are times I turn my nose at my neighbor or quickly pass judgment. Today, I turn to you in faith. You know what I need most.
So if it’s new insight, grant me your perspective.
If it’s a sense of joy or purpose, help me to find it.
If it’s healing or recovery, make me your restoration project.
If it’s peace or respite, allow me a period of refreshment.
Remind me that I am not alone; whatever I’m facing in life, we can face together.
Allow me the grace to see your face in mine and in the people I meet.
This I pray in Jesus’ name.

Emmanuel, God with Us,

Hidden in Plain Sight: The Parables of Jesus
Oct 13, 2019

Christ of Mystery, Wonder and Discovery,

Hidden in plain sight, you are always with me. Help me to dig beneath the surface of my faith and explore my role in strengthening the roots of our relationship. Guide my understanding of your teachings, that I may be challenged, encouraged and inspired toward action. Together with the church, compel me to say YES to loving and feeding our community in body and spirit.
