How many miracles do we need to completely trust Him? Are we looking to be perfect before we go with Jesus into our communities? Don’t you think the power of Jesus can transform us as we step out of the doubting framework ? Matt 28:16-20
Lord, to call us to share in Your mission even when we lack faith is Your way of showing us that we can do nothing without You.
Lord, thank You for inviting us and affirming us with Your authority and presence to share in Your mission with immediacy and purpose even after You have understood our frame of reference.
What will you say about the one who did many miracles but couldn’t save oneself? Isn’t it extraordinary deliverance as a sign of God’s favor? What makes you not to pray for that and to trust in God’s providence? Matt 27:11-61
Lord, we generally prefer momentary relief from our struggles to the unfolding of eternal purpose; give us peace to pray, “not as I will, but as You will.”
Lord, let us pray to daily see Your glory and grace so that we can let go of certain insistence that You should work in a particular way.
How have your insecurities prevented you from moving on with the task of God? How have broken spirit and life situations hindered you from believing God? What are the other limiting situations that make you slow to respond to God? Exo 5,6
Lord, we acknowledge that broken dreams and hardships can deplete us of all hope and faith; thank You for Your nudging hand and voice which reminds us of Your covenant and envision us to be part of Your dream.
Lord, even when we forget Your covenant and carry shattered dreams and broken spirit, You not only remember us but also become our Immanuel to lead with Your mighty hand and voice towards Your promise.
Even after walking with Him for quite some time, have you been caught unawares by His actions and words? In spite of it, have you sensed the depth in the relationship He wants with us? When we misunderstand Him how can we avoid drastic actions which are detrimental? Matt 26:6-30
Lord, often we misunderstand Your actions because we think from an earthly perspective, yet You invite us to enter into a deeper relationship with You.
Lord, may our ears heed to Your invitation to enter into a deeper relationship with You before our misunderstanding leads us to detrimental actions.
Is there any kind of gift to overwrite the pain and agony of losses? How can we be at peace even if we are blessed more in the latter part than the first when losses involve children? What is the key to experience peace? Job 42:7-16
Lord, humanly speaking we cannot make sense of any loss even if we are abundantly blessed afterwards, but we realise our life is meant to be a life of surrender.
Lord, when losses have utterly shattered us we continue to surrender so that we may be stewards of the blessings You have given us after the losses.
How will you will you answer the question, “What do you want?” Is it something that will help you to follow Him better than before? Or is it something to help you look better than before? Matt 20: 20-34
Lord, many times our requests are based on our desire to be better than before and nothing to do with the desire to follow You, thank You because You still answer our prayers.
Lord, when we bring our concerns or when we intercede let our requests reflect our desire to follow You better than yesterday.
