We Are Encouraged

Psalm 27:13-14 (NRSV) I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord !

Gracious God, you are good and your mercy endures forever. You love us even when we do not deserve to be loved. You have mercy on us even when we have sinned against each other. Forgive us. Restore us. Renew us, O God. We are encouraged by your steadfast love. And we believe that we will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Help us to wait on you. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Set Your Sights on Things Above

Colossians 3:1 (NRSV) So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Holy God, thank you for the wisdom of your word that reminds us that, as believers, we have been raised with Christ and that we should set our sights on things that rise above the pettiness that often confronts us in today’s society. Help us to maintain our integrity and live by the standards Jesus modeled for us in his earthly ministry. In the Blessed name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

You Protect the Lowly

Psalm 138:7 (NKJV)  Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand Against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.

Omnipresent God, thank you for sitting high and looking low. Thank you for walking beside me in the midst of my troubles. Thank you for protecting me against attacks from my enemies. On every turn, you stretch out your hand to deliver me. I am so grateful! Your word says that you will never leave us or forsake us. Thank you for your steadfast love and your grace. In all things I give you glory. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
