Sun and rain

He gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike (Matthew 5:45; NLT).

***********************

Lord God,
Your love
Falls on us all –
Like sun and rain.

Prayer

You hold us

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27; NIV).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up (James 4:10; NIV).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

………………………………………………..

 

Lord,
You hold us in your arms,
But we don’t see you;

You talk to us each day,
But we don’t hear;

You lift us when we fall,
But we don’t thank you;

Yet you love us as we are –
Year after year.

Prayer

Jesus replied, “ ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’ ” (Matthew 22:37; NLT).

But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit
(1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).


Lord,
In prayer,
May my mind
Unite with yours,
Like rain
Falling into a stream.

Lord,
In worship,
May my heart
Unite with yours,
Like a stream
Flowing into a river.

Lord,
In contemplation,
May my soul
Unite with yours,
Like a river
Pouring into the sea.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Dust

Hello everyone. Today there are two short reflections on the same theme:


Dust

“Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home” (Matthew 8:8; NLT).

Then Abraham spoke again. “Since I have begun, let me speak further to my Lord, even though I am but dust and ashes” (Genesis 18:27; NLT).

Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him (Deuteronomy 13:4; NLT).

…lead me along the path of everlasting life (Psalm 139:24; NLT).


Lord,
I am not worthy
To approach you.

Let me be a speck of dust
Clinging to your sandal,

So I can follow the path of everlasting life
In your presence every day.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.


Dust 

For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust (Psalm 103:14; NLT).

If any household or town refuses to welcome you or listen you your message, shake its dust from your feet as you leave (Matthew 10:14; NLT).

Though they stumble they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand
(Psalm 37:24; NLT).


Lord,
You know how weak I am.

I’m only a speck of dust
Clinging to your sandal.

When I let you down,
Please don’t shake me off.

When I stumble,
Please don’t let me fall.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
