(a prayer for personal devotion)
Sometimes there seems so much to achieve on a Sunday. I confess that I find it hard to truly give you time. Yet I know that when I do stop, come before you Heavenly Father and lay down my stresses and tasks, I discover that I am rich. I find that I have more patience to achieve these concerns, more courage to approach them and more peace within them.
So I commit to always trying to spend the first hour of Sunday with you. Here I know I will find more love than I believed possible, new peace in my heart and renewed strength to face the coming week.
Today I breathe in the extraordinary victory of your life, death and resurrection. I look and see my own feet balancing upon an amazing path of truth. I step back away from the confines of my own understanding to connect with your eternal Kingdom.
Today I stretch my heart and mind wide to let in the amazing capacity of your love. I soak in the world turned around, redeemed and awaiting renewal! And I wrap myself, my family, my hopes and my dreams in this risen hope. Lord, I place my trust firmly upon death overcome, and lift my eyes to eternity.
