Reflection & Prayer

Proverbs 24:12 (NLT)Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.

Sovereign God: you understand my heart; you guard my soul. May your kingdom come, your will be done – in me.

+ Help me to choose my friends wisely, that I may stay out of trouble.
+ Give me your wisdom and strength, that I may live sensibly under pressure.
+ Surround me with wise advisors, that I may live successfully in the face of disaster.
+ Give me humility and grace, that I may not take pleasure in the failures of my foes.
+ Help me to decide fairly between right and wrong, innocence and guilt.
+ Fill me with your Spirit, that I may speak the truth, kindly and gently.
+ Remove the impurities in my heart, that you may reign supreme within me.
+ Make me a reliable messenger of your comfort, mercy, and grace.
+ Give me the grace to respond to my enemies with kindness and mercy.

Sovereign God: Give me the patience and self-control that I need to be a faithful witness to Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.
