Morning Prayer This Week
12/17 Dearest Lord, Your invitation settles in my soul: "Turn to me and be safe."
Something lets go inside when I take those words into my heart.
They are an invitation for me to rest.
So many moments of my life are filled with my own needs.
"Turn to me and be safe," you say to me again.
Give me the great grace to let go from the depths of my soul.
Help me to be released from the demons I cling to with so much fear.
I hear your invitation to ask for help
and I begin to list all the places in my life that need healing.
"Turn to me and be safe."
You promise your saving help and I know it is the only thing that can heal me.
I feel your presence in my life and am aware of the growing joy I feel
as I anticipate celebrating the birth of your son.
12/18 Oh, God of wisdom, I want to praise you and give you my life.
Like a loving parent, you bless me.
You have watched over me, knowing my history and the path that led me to you.
Thank you for the peace you promise in my life.
I ask that I be always aware of the strength of your great power.
May it never leave me.
So many people before me in so many generations,
have served you so humbly, answering your call.
Please give me the wisdom and courage to be your humble servant.
12/19 I lift my heart up to you, Lord, to thank you for the blessings you shower on me each day.
You are the 'joy of my soul.'
I know that in your great love, I am held and protected by you.
I pray and listen to the good news you send; I ask and feel the healing.
I am freed by you from the things in this world that let me hide from you.
I rejoice, I rejoice, down to my soul.
Help me to prepare my heart to be open and able to receive your immense love.
