“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
John 15:11 NIV
Let us pray.
Lord of life help us to find Your joy that restores life and hope into broken hearts.
Lord in the morning light the beauty of Your light falls on dull eyes tired from the meaningless of strivings.
Help us to redefine our focus to see the true light of what are lives are to be,
To reach out to our neighbours on the journey of life,
To walk with strangers on the journey of faith,
And fellow sinners seeking grace and forgiveness.
Lord enliven our fragile lives to see again or maybe to truly see for the first time,
The intricate beauties of shared life and grace,
Of renewed breath from deadened lives.
Your faithfulness guides our steps, our sight, our ears, our souls,
Redeeming us from the baseness of our sin drenched hearts,
Raising us to righteous acts of grace.
In You we place our hope, our hearts, our lives.
We pray this in Your name, Amen.
