Trinity prayer

God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.”
(Genesis 1:26; NLT).

Father, you’re my Maker,
Jesus, you’re my Choice;
Spirit, you’re my Advocate:
Lord, please hear my voice.

Father, you’re my Shepherd,
Jesus, you’re my Light;
Spirit, you’re my Comforter:
Lord, may we unite.

Father, I revere you,
Jesus, I adore;
Spirit, I delight in you:
One Lord, for evermore.

🖤

The Lord our God, the Lord is one!
(Deuteronomy 6:4; NKJV).


Why am I here?

I desire to do your will, my God.
(Psalm 40:8; NIV).

Why am I here, Lord?
What is my task?
How can I do your will?

By turning from sin,
And trusting my Son;
Praying, alone, every day.

Why am I here, Lord?
What is my task?
How can I do your will?

By taking your cross,
And following Christ;
Uniting with us, as one.

Why am I here, Lord?
What is my task?
How can I do your will?

By seeking my face,
And learning to love;
Forgiving both friend and foe.

Why am I here, Lord?
What is my task?
How can I do your will?

By bearing what comes,
And growing in faith;
Accepting both good and ill.

💜

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord.
(Job 1:21; NKJV).


The past

He has planted eternity in the human heart
(Ecclesiastes 3:11; NLT).

1. The past
Is not behind us:
It is now.

2. The future,
Not ahead:
Already here.

3. Far beyond time,
God pours out justice
And mercy,

4. Uniting us all in his peace:
No beginning;
No end.

His government and its peace will never end
(Isaiah 9:7; NLT).

🤎

Everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him (Philippians 3:8-9; NLT).

1. Unite with Christ,
The Lord of lords,
And with all those
Who offer prayer.

2. Unite with Christ,
The Son of Man,
And with all those
Who love, and care.

3. Unite with Christ,
The King of kings,
And with all those
In want, and fear.

4. Unite with Christ,
The Son of God,
And with all those
Who suffer here.

May the Lord make your love for one another
and for all people grow and overflow
(1 Thessalonians 3:12; NLT).
