Heavenly Father, I know that all of us, sooner or later, will likely encounter some form of disability, especially as we grow older. Disability is part of the human condition.

Prayer for today (3/19/17)

Dear God, here we are grateful to be aware of your presence and rejoice in it. It is only by your power that we rise to claim our eternal inheritance. Even when our faith becomes a flickering candle in an undetermined night, you fix our collective gaze toward what we know to be right, just and fair. Here we are God answering your call to be game changers, utilizing divinely given complex creative gits. You have asked us to be bold in the face of the senseless sufferings of our time. Here we are, God, thanking you for the backbone to stand up against the naysayers; the tools to do the impossible before breakfast; the chutzpah to refuse to step aside and let others do it; the courage to be who you meant us to be and the consistent inspiration to dream, provide, advise, explore, confess, organize, support, dance, laugh, love and love again as we seek new ventures. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer for today (3/4/17)

Dear Lord, if it had not been you who was and is on my side, I would have given up a long time ago. The many times I’ve struggled in the miry clay, it was nobody but you who pulled me out. Other times I back slid and family and friends gave up on me. It was nobody but you who strengthened and encouraged me. Even though I was enduring consequences and afflictions for my sins against you, somehow you still strengthened and loved me to encourage somebody else. Help me to obey and do your word so it pleases you, Lord, and I’ll give you the praise. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
