A Simple Prayer
Our Father In Heaven,
Today we pray that we would know your love everlasting and your truth all surpassing. We pray that we would embrace the beauty of this fallen world with hope and compassion. We long to be a part of a community that endures the journeys that we are about to take up as chapters in a story that ends with unconditional reconciliation to you. I ask that you whisper loudly into our hearts the truth of who you have created us to be. I pray that we surrender our stories for yours, embracing you as the One who will write a script that will overshadow the simple ones we write for ourselves. In all of your radiance, power, and glory, would you rend the heavens and join us here? Would we humbly walk with you among this broken and tarnished generation? Would we seek to say something with our lives that reflects you infinite love? Would we let you redeem our broken relations, heal or sickness, restore our purpose? We beg you to move in our lives in such a creative, wondrous way that the world would glorify your name by their awestruck gazes. Breathe life into dry bones. Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be done, on Earth as it is In Heaven, from generation to generation, from city to city, from nation to nation, forever until forever. In the power of the name of Jesus.
