Prayer

Whole

You will be made complete with all the fulness of life and power that comes from God (Ephesians 3:19; NLT).

You […] are complete through your union with Christ (Colossians 2:10; NLT).

………………………………………………

 

Lord God,

Today, you showed me
I’m completely whole,

Because the less there is of me,
The more you give;

So you make up
For all of my deficiencies.

You show yourself

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known (Psalm 19:1-2; NLT).

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

Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times (Matthew 26:75; RSV).

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1; NLT).

 

Lord,
You show yourself
In every flower,
And you speak to us
In every tree.

Lord, you show yourself
In every creature,
And you speak to us
In sky and sea.

Yet, no matter
What you show to us,
Or how you speak to us
In this, your world,

Even as the cock crows,
We deny you,
Rejecting your creation,
And your Word.

NOT WORTHY

Not worthy

I am not worthy of all the love and faithfulness you have shown to me” (Genesis 32:10; NLT).

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun (2 Corinthians 5:17; NLT).

“I am not even worthy to come and meet you” (Luke 7:7; NLT).


Lord,
I’m not worthy
To be loved,
Yet you adore me.

I’m not worthy
Of forgiveness,
Yet you pardon me.

I’m not worthy
To be healed,
Yet you restore me.

I’m not worthy
Of new life,
Yet you redeem me.

I’m not worthy
To draw near,
And yet you welcome me.

All

All

Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins (Psalm 103:2-3; NIV).

My son, do not despise the LORD’S discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in (Proverbs 3:11-12; NIV).

Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths (Psalm 25:4; NIV).

It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him
(Deuteronomy 13:4; NIV).

Lord,
I love you so much.

Please forgive all my sins,
Correct all my faults,
Teach me all I need to know,
And help me to serve you.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Service

Service

“Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me”
(Matthew 10:38; NIV).

“Whoever serves me must follow me” (John 12:26; NIV).

Father,
You know how sinful,
Weak,
Ignorant
And foolish I am.

Please show me your will,
Equip me to serve you,
And help me to follow your Son
To the very best of my ability.

In his holy name,
Amen.
