Unity

God is light (1 John 1:5; NLT).

The God of peace be with you all (Romans 15:33; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

For the LORD is your life (Deuteronomy 30:20; NIV).


As we seek unity
With God,
He draws us
Into his light,
His stillness
And silence,
His peace,
Love,
And life.

Far away

Why are you so far away when I groan for help? (Psalm 22:1; NLT).

“…he is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27; NLT).

For what great nation has a god as near to them as the LORD our God is near to us whenever we call on him? (Deuteronomy 4:7; NLT).

For in him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28, NIV).

“Keep on seeking, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

Father,
Today you seem
So far away.

Yet I know
You are near,
For in you I live
And move,
And have my being.

Please help me
To keep on seeking you,
With all my heart.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Futile

Remember how short my life is, how empty and futile this human existence! (Psalm 89:47; NLT).

Darkness is my closest friend (Psalm 88:18; NLT). God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

For the Lord your God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only’ ”  (Luke 4:8; NIV).


Lord,
When my life
Seems futile,
And my soul
Is in darkness,

Please flood me
With your light,
Love,
And fire,

So I can serve
And worship you,
With all my heart.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

God

Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

But the Holy Sprit produces this kind of fruit on our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-3; NLT).

For the LORD is your life (Deuteronomy 30:20; NIV).


Lord,
You are truly righteous
And holy.

You are love,
Joy,
And peace;

Patience,
Kindness,
And goodness;

Faithfulness,
Gentleness,
And self-control.

Please help me
To become like you –
For you are my life.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
