The Story: Unsatisfied
Nov 18, 2018

O God, you are the Alpha and the Omega; the beginning and the end. The sun rises and sets because of you. You are the author of all that is and ever will be. Everything I am and everything I have is a result of your generosity, creative Spirit and love for me. In you, I place my gratitude. Why, then, is it so hard for me to keep you at the center of my heart, my thoughts and my desires? Instead of contentment, I hunger for more…. Break through the walls of self-centeredness, fear, lust, loneliness, greed and any other barrier that might be keeping me from recognizing your sufficiency in my life. Help me to remember that your grace is enough. Today, I recommit myself to you. Amen.

The Story: Victory Against All Odds
Oct 27, 2018

Dear God,

Though I often prioritize my own preferences and desires, your plans, dreams and hopes for me are ultimate story I want to live. When I think the odds are stacked against me, break through the narrative I tell myself, reminding me that Christ is the true source of my victory—always and forever. May your Spirit work within me, enabling me to sense and trust your triumphant presence in profound ways. Help me to say YES to loving and feeding my community in body and spirit, that all may experience your victory.

Amen.

The Story: Hope in the Darkness
Sep 08, 2018

Dear God,

Though I often get caught up in my own story, yours is the grand narrative I want to claim. Break through my thoughts, words and deeds, enabling me to better listen for and sense the wisdom of your Spirit. Help Scripture to come alive for me as I encounter the biblical text. Remind me that even in the darkest of moments, resurrection hope is always possible. In your holy and sacred name, I pray. 

Amen.

Hi Neighbor: Spiritual Lessons with Mister Rogers
Jul 30, 2018

Dear Jesus,

You have loved me from the beginning. Even before a word was on my tongue, you knew me and called me special. There is no person in the whole world like me and you love me exactly the way I am. I want to see the world as you see it—filled with potential and life-giving promise. Help me to believe and trust your love for me. Help me to love myself. Break through and lead me to make the most of this beautiful day, that I might love my neighbor more fully and completely than I did yesterday. This I pray in your holy name.

Amen.

Pray
Jun 16, 2018

Compassionate Christ,

I believe that prayer strengthens our relationship and seek your help in making it a priority. Guide and break through my prayer life, that I might know what and for whom I should pray. Increase my confidence in my ability to pray silently and aloud. Use my life for astonishing and refreshing purposes—all for the sake of your kingdom. This I pray in your powerful and redemptive name.

Amen.
