VERSE OF THE WEEK:
2 Corinthians 3:18 So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord- who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. (NLT)
…and so … our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become live him. (MSG) And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (NIV)
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (KJV)
PRAYER OF THE WEEK:
Lord, we praise You for the power of the Holy Spirit that you have placed with us. It is you, within us, and you have given us full access to your limitless power. The same power that raised Christ from the dead and that gave Christ the power to do miracles, is within us, through Christ and through you. Let us never forget that you are always with us and we will never be alone.
The world can feel overwhelming. We confess that we sometimes let the uncertainty of the unknown intimidate us, daunt us or keep us stuck. You want more for us. You did not create us to live in fear or anxiety. You have given us a spirit of power and peace, and we step into that through you. Thank you that we are never alone and that the story you are writing with our lives is in your hands. We don’t have to have it figured out, we just have to trust you.
Thank you for the gift that you give us – that we can spend less energy “trying” and more energy “trusting.” What a gift we have in this life you have given us – to look at in through the lens of an adventure, with you writing the narrative.
Surround us with your angels and protection everywhere we go. We thank you in advance for the people, challenges and circumstances that will come our way, and we pray that you would fill our hearts with peace, our mind with flexibility and openness and our perspective with a leaning towards learning and adventure. In whatever our struggle and challenge will be today, we praise you that you carry us from glory to glory, victory to victory. Keep our eyes on the next victory and our next step as we trust in you and your provision. You are our refuge, you are our safety, with you all is good.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
