Powerful God, I am thankful for your presence in my life this morning ….
I seem to be especially mindful of your Spirit as it works in me and through me in the midst of my pain, my sorrows, and even reveals your beauty in the people I encounter ….
Grace me with ears to hear. Grant me the ability to hear your voice above the noise of life. Grant me the wisdom to respond. I pray that today will be full of peace and nothing like yesterday …..
Grace me with eyes to behold. I will strive to notice You in all of the beauty and struggle of Your creation this day …..
Forget not the homeless and less fortunate I pray, who are alone and struggling in this cold weather with no coats or place to rest ….
Bless all those in need and give attention to those feeling alone or forgotten. Extend Your loving presence and allow Your wing to shadow them in the hour that they need You ….
Use me, I pray, and hide me behind the cross that only You may be seen, aY allow Your warm embrace to be felt through me, my words, and my deeds, and my prayers …
I am your kindling my Lord ~ lay me across your alter; that your Holy Ghost fire may consume me and burn so brightly that all who see me may see YOU!!! And thereby You be glorified ….
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I pray. Amen.
