Painting by Karen Simpson

Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him.

See that you go on growing in the Lord,

and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught.

Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done.

Colossians 2:7

Thank you Lord for your many blessings and miracles. Grow us strong roots to keep us grounded in your love.  Let our lives overflow with peace and thanksgiving offerings.  Wrap your arms around our brothers and sisters who struggle with joy and thankfulness. Give strength to all surrounded by evil.  Make your presence known, help us sow seeds of peace and find safety in your truth. Your love is abundant. Amen

A Prayer of Confidence

autumn-path-paintCrop-kpsPsalm 27: 1, 13-14 (NIV)

The Lord is my light and my salvation —
whom shall I fear?

I remain confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.

Thank you Lord for guiding my path.  Thank you for your GRACE!  As the sun sets and the moon rises I remember you are with me.  I am an alien in this world.  I am a stranger.  I am confident I will see your face.  You will hold me and wipe my tears.  You will explain your mystery and I will drench in your love.  All will know I am your child – beloved and significant.  All  will be forgiven and all will be healed in the land of living. Thank you FATHER! Thank you! Amen.
