Forgive me Lord Jesus where I have forgotten the magnitude of your authority. Holy Spirit, help me obey Jesus’ command to share the fact that Jesus is the only appointed authority with the power to forgive and restore us to a right relationship with God.
Jesus, the Lord Christ, help me keep my attention on you, the source of my life and my redemption. May obedience become my genuine response to God’s give of grace, for I accept I cannot gain it on my own.
Thank you Jesus for overturning the status quo and taking my place on the cross. You suffered and died for my sake and the that of the whole world – past, present and future generations.
Jesus, wash me in your blood from head to toe, so I may live in unity with you. Teach me to share your message of redemption with those who are not yet cleansed.
Thank you, Jesus, for opening the pathway to God’s mercy and grace. I affirm my sincere intention to embrace God’s will over my own.
Holy Spirit, let me be a watcher today. Help me call others to a personal encounter with God’s mercy and grace.
Dear Lord Forgive us when we deny our faith, when we relegate You to an hour on a Sunday, when we fail to prayerfully consider your word and when we willfully try to live our lives according to our will and not Yours
What a great sacrifice you gave to us in the form of your Word made flesh. When the Hebrews lost their way, you provided your Son as a guiding light. When we lose our way, Jesus is still there as a guiding light. We give praise to you that in your infinite wisdom and grace we are never forsaken. Amen
Dear Lord . Forgive me when I act without thought or care for other people. Forgive me when I selfishly think only of fulfilling my own wants and desires. Help me to treat each person I meet as my neighbour; as one loved by you. Amen
Dear Lord. Help me to be a disciple for you. Help me live a life that shows others what it is to experience your grace. Help me not to be afraid to share your good news to those around me. Amen
Dear Lord. Help us to remember that in all things You are there to guide us and challenge us. We pray that we can hear your voice even when we allow the world around us to drown out your message. Amen
Dear Lord. We give praise and thanks for the good things you give us in this earthly life we live; hope, joy, peace and the greatest of these, love. Because we experience Your love for us we can then give love to others. Amen
Father God, at times our life becomes bound up in the past. It’s easy to live in our past, our safe place to go. Encourage us to pause and look to the future through the lens of Hope. Amen
Father God, we struggle with death and its finality. It is so difficult to let go. Encourage us to share with others our grief as expressions of our love for a life well lived. Amen
Father God, create in us a sensitive heart as we share the grief of others and that of ourselves. As we care for others, may we find peace in a God who loves us dearly. Amen
Father God, we become far too anxious about the future. Plant in us the seed of courage so we can live each day by faith in the hope that tomorrow will be a better place for all the peoples. Amen.
