Lessons from a Dreamer: The Story of Joseph
Jul 12, 2020

Dear God,

You are the God of my ancestors and my future. I am filled with wonder when I consider all that you have done. Help me to remember that even when I do not see it, your Holy Spirit is at work in and through every situation; for in all things, you work for good. So break through the routines I establish and the circumstances beyond my control. Gift me with signposts that point me toward hope. Generate dreams in me that are consistent with those you have for my life. Use me and use my church to love our community with the boldness and confidence of Joseph, that in all things, you may be glorified. This I pray in the name of Jesus.                                      

Amen.

A Pandemic Summer
Jun 28, 2020

Radiant Christ,

We worship you today with awe and love. While we are physically distanced, help us to remember that we are connected by the strength and ongoing presence of your Spirit. We pray for health professionals, first responders, child care workers and all who care for others. We pray for those who are ill and for their families. We pray for racial justice and collaborative action; for vision and direction. Grant us an awareness of your presence when we experience fear, emptiness or worry. Give to us your courage and hope in these days of uncertainty. Break through each of our lives and use us as you see fit, that we might champion your grace in the world.

Amen.

Unraveled
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.

Amen.

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.               

Amen.

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.

Amen.
