Prayers for the Tour - Monday
I Am, Present Be
As emotions flutter with excitement and anticipation
May your Presence ground and calm and anchor us to a higher reality.
As details clamor for dwindling reserves of attention and energy and time
May your Presence empower and direct and accomplish Your will.
As needs so large and deep and complex and unsolvable come forward
May your Presence unknot and lift and exalt Jesus’ name above it all.
As faith and doubt battle within our hearts
May your Presence settle the question, proving your Word, filling us with knowing.
As distractions and resistance pull our focus sideways
May your Presence call us to be present, to listen, to obey.
I Am, present be.
We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Colossians 1:9 – 14
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
