Justice

Father, let justice and righteousness flow like mighty rivers and surge like mighty oceans. Flood is with it.

.

.

Let us be a people who stand up for the poor and marginalized.

.

.

Father, give us compassion just as Jesus operated constantly in compassion and never got annoyed with the constant need and interruptions.

.

.

Interrupt our lives. Ruin our likes for the normal.

.

.

Move us mightily with your great love to live our justice and righteousness.

.

.

Thank you that you are our great and merciful Judge.

Amos 5

Delight

Father, my desire is that your word and all that is in it becomes a joy and a delight to me more and more every day. 

.

.

I want to be thrilled by what you have hidden for me to find as I search for you.

.

.

My greatest desire is to shed this dead self that is full of sin, to become a radiant reflection of you and your name so that all come to see and know you. Help me to live a life worthy of carrying your name, full of grace, mercy and repentance. 

.

.

You are my delight.

Jeremiah

Lack

Father, thank you for the example of the widow and the offering she gave.

.

.

She gave out of the abundance she had in you. Though she walked in poverty on this earth, but she lived her life knowing that all she needed could be found in you. 

.

.

You are enough.

.

.

Help me to live in that same mindset on this earth. That no matter the lack or overflow that I have in earthing things, none of it compares to who you are and the riches of knowing you gives. Make me content in you, knowing and trusting that I am yours, I Am Loved and all I need is found in you.

Mark 12

Soil

Father, thank you for your word and the Holy Spirit to give understanding.

.

.

I see myself in all four kinds of soil through my life. It breaks my heart because I want to have understanding of your ways and Your Kingdom.

.

.

Make my heart good soil for the seeds of your word so that my life will give fruit and bring you glory. Change my heart, oh God.

Anxious

Father, you command me not to be anxious but to run to you in prayer.

.

.

Thank you that you listen to my prayers and that you know what I need before I need it.

.

.

Thank you that you provide peace and protection from my own wicked heart and earthy mind when I run to you. 

.

.

Help me to walk in obedience on where I place my mind and heart. Thank you that you have given me what I need to stand on your word and in trust.

Philippians 4

Peace

Father, the words of Jesus are so hard. His warnings so strong. That persecution will come. But not to fear.

.

.

Thank you for your great love. That even when a sparrow falls, you know. And I am of more value to you, so that you know every hair on my head.

.

.

I want to live my life proclaiming the truth found in knowing you.

.

.

Thank you for the peace that you bring to me. But that peace was a violent thing to attain. Thank you that Jesus was obedient to endure that violence and make a way for peace between you and every man, woman and child. Thank you that you are my Peace.

Matthew 10

Why?

Father, sometimes I wonder why you set us on the path you have set us on. Or why you have allowed the difficulties that you have.

.

.

When things get hard I am tempted to ask questions like "why?" And "Will you please fix this??"

.

.

It is harder from me to ask for your will.

.

.

Help me to trust your perfect Father heart toward me. Help me to trust the path you have for me. Help me to know without a doubt, that this thing, obstacle, trial, is for your glory. Help me to trust like Jesus. He knew your heart for him and he obeyed. 

.

.

You have always done it. You always will. Even in the pain, let my will die and let your will be done.

.

.

Thank you that you will accomplish this for your glory.

Mark 14
