Prayer for Resting in the Lord

Prayer for Resting in the Lord
I lean forward, Lord.       I wait eagerly for sunrise, for You— to see the face of Truth rising in love over my cloudy horizon.   I wait in stillness like the grass, at peace with the dew, with the shades of darkness that will not remain in daylight, at rest beside the mountains of mystery I cannot understand.   I wait in fullness, my heart open like the blooms of summer zinnias, holding nothing back.   I wait in reverence with the trees, with nothing to boast of except for the One who made me as I am, in His image.   I lean forward to see You, to know You, and to flourish   in Your presence today.  ...

Prayer in Time of Drought

Father,   The dust chokes me, stifles my breath.   In the lethargy of heat I’ve grown weary: Vigilance receding like water from the creek’s edge. Alertness fading like porch cushions exposed to sun.   Father, forgive me.   O Son who thirsted on the cross that I might drink Living Water,   refill the empty wells of my heart.   Lead me to times of refreshment in the Spirit’s presence, to the sparkling, still waters where Your words are clear and healing. O God who supplies in all seasons, I look to You who restores my soul, who makes me flourish in the wilderness. Cover me with Your promises, and with...

Lord of all, be Lord even of broken dreams, Lord over every shattered piece edged with tears.

Prayer to the God who Answers

Oh Love that hears before I speak that provides before I need: like sunrise making its way around the world until it’s time for me to be awakened.   Unlike the unjust judge, You answer from compassion and kindness, rewarding perseverance and faith with fullness.   As You do not withhold stars from the night sky, nor sun from the day, neither do You withhold light  provision  direction  warmth from Your children, nor love from the one who approaches You.   Father of lights, hold me between sunrise and noontime, opening Your Word to my spirit, like doves released to the heavens, free to experience the...

Prayer for Renewal

Savior,   I need renewal like the sunrise, that often.   Help me see it in all areas stale or stagnate help me see it in all its forms:   like fresh snow under sunshine like the crocus through the frost like spring birds chirping at midnight.   Make these dead seeds in my heart live again, flowering into something new, petals facing the light, letting in You—   always available.   Sweep across my horizon like windswept sunbeams after clean rain.   Not retained, unconfined. Blasting from darkness. Powerful, vibrant with resurrection.   O Lord of Renewal, Amen....
