God-Sized Hole: Holy Thursday, April 13

God-Sized Hole: Holy Thursday, April 13

Father, thank you for sending your Son so that our thirst can be forever quenched.  Jesus, thank you for giving your body and blood that we may have a relationship with you. Please help us to identify the things in our own lives that we are putting above you, and help us to share your love with others who are in need of your rest, peace, identity, meaning, purpose, and lasting contentment to their awe-craving heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Everything in God's Hands: Holy Wednesday, April 12

Dear Jesus, forgive us when we try to face life on our terms without seeking your perfect will for us first. Teach me to be more like you. You did not look back and regret the course of your life but instead looked forward to the completion ofyour task. You trusted God’s will would be done and that all would work for the good of all people by the week’s end. Help me also to trust God’s plan for my life. In your name, Amen.

Son or Shadow Watcher: Palm Sunday, April 9

Father, God of Light, in whom no darkness dwells, thank you for sending your only Son to take us out of the shadows and into your Light.  Help us to live as people who love and follow Jesus, the radiance of your glory, the true light of the world, and guide us as we shine that light into the lives of others who are still lost in the darkness.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
