Dear Father God in heaven 

I thank you for each fresh new start every morning.

I pray that your spirit will come afresh in me today.
From the moment I wake to the time to sleep, let me make the most of this day.

Restore hope in our nation and a world that feels broken in a way only you can.

Restore hope and healing to the sick.
Bring peace to the grieving.
Bring Joy to the disillusioned and depressed.

Lord I am but one person.
Show me how to share your light before others in new and fresh ways.

Let me come together with my family in Christ showing unity and bringing your message of hope and light into what feels like a dark world.

Father come today in a fresh new way that I and others cannot ignore, showing your grace love and mercy in a fresh and new way to all we meet along the way virtually or physically.

  1. Thanks for the thoughtful way you communicate. I especially liked “Lord I am but one person. Show me how to share your light before others in new and fresh ways.” To that I say, “Amen” and that is what every follower of Jesus needs for today. Fresh ways mimic the creativity of God. The fresh snow this morning was one reminder of God’s faithfulness to cleanse using frozen water. Not just liquid water. He is creative and we should be too if we want to image Him.

  2. Dear Lord, I cannot stand erect,
    the pain is far too great,
    but stooped and ill, let me reflect
    that those who stand and wait
    can also your Kingdom serve,
    when comfort’s sacrificed,
    and in a turn so undeserved
    become Body of the Christ,
    saved by Your grace to give their hearts
    to a cause beyond the morning sun,
    saved by Your love to stand apart
    from the world, and live as one
    community in faith and hope
    to find compassion as our scope.
