This Week's Prayers
Monday, August 14, 2017
(Meditation: Proverbs 3:5-6)
God, too many times my prayers are like a check-list. But God, You have shown me that true prayer is not a check-list. True prayer is holding others in my heart, lifting them up lovingly to You by name, feeling their need, yielding them to You. God, thank you for showing me again that true prayer is a deep relationship with others, and with You. Through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

(Meditation: Luke 15:17-19)
God, like the prodigal son, help me to be still . . . to look back . . . to recollect . . . to remember . . . to repent . . . to confess . . . and to come home to You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Ephesians 5:1-2)
God, if I knew that Jesus would come back today, what would I change? What thoughts? . . . what habits? . . . what attitudes? . . . what relationships? God, help me to be more Christ-centered, living as if every day is my last, as if Jesus were returning today. Amen.

(Meditation: I John 4:19)
God, my relationships with others reflect my relationship with You. When I know that You love me and accept me, I am free to love and accept others. When I know that I am a child of God, I am free to love others as brothers and sisters. Thank You for Your abiding love -- may it be seen in my relationship with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.

(Meditation: Matthew 20:26-28)
God, the bumper sticker read, "If You Like Your Freedom, Thank A Vet." It reminded me how thankful I am for those who serve in our country's armed forces today and those who have retired from military service. Many times we forget that our freedom was won and is maintained by those who wait to be called up and shipped out at any moment, and by those who gave their lives that we might live free. Be near those who are in harm's way today. Bless them and their families. Grant them a place of honor in the thoughts and prayers of all Americans. Amen.
