For those who need rest – Morning Prayer for July 19, 2024

*Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord.* If you are waiting on the Lord, you are in a good place. Oh, it can be frustrating and full of not understanding, but it is in that place that we can receive. We are not just going on our way. We are put in a posture of receiving. I sure want to receive. More. Help me take courage as I wait on You, Lord.

For those who long to be free – Morning Prayer for July 18, 2024

There’s a reason Psalm 37:4 is so famous. I mean, who doesn’t want to hear about getting the desires of your heart? I think that’s amazing. Even when someone doesn’t understand the context or even the implications of this verse. I love even more that it doesn’t talk about duty or obedience (though those are important!). It says to delight yourself in the Lord. Have fun with Him. Don’t take yourself and all that is happening too seriously. DELIGHT yourself in Him. Then He will give you — with His own delight, I believe — the things you are longing for. What’s in your heart.

My hope is fixed on You – Morning Prayer for July 17, 2024

Sometimes, the Lord brings us to a place where our only hope is Him. Even though we try to avoid it at all costs and try to hedge our bets with lots of options, it’s a profound place where we meet our Father. I think of one of my favorite movies, Star Wars (really any and all Star Wars — I celebrate it all lol) where Princess Leia sends a message to Obi-Wan Kenobi that says, “You’re our only hope.” Where else could we go, Lord, as Peter proclaims. You are our only hope…isn’t that the best news? Our only hope is our best hope.

Your love is before my eyes – Morning Prayer for July 16, 2024

There’s so much talk of looking at the Lord in the Psalms. Striking phrases. Psalm 26: “For you love is before my eyes.” Beautiful. I can’t look away from You Lord. You are glorious and powerful and yet accessible and approachable…just what is it about You? Let’s have this heart as we enter into this time of prayer and worship!

Your paths are love and faithfulness – Morning Prayer for July 15, 2024

What does it mean, “The paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness”? (From today’s Psalm) First, it’s beautifully poetic. The beauty of walking along a path that’s actually made of love and faithfulness is amazing. But, beyond that, it’s assurance that when we follow the Lord we are walking a path that results in good. Not hate and turmoil, but love. Not straying and disappointment, but faithfulness. Those are the paths I want to follow. Lord, help me find them and walk down them always!

We shall be satisfied – Morning Prayer for July 12, 2024

I love the end of Psalm 17 from today’s reading: “…when I awake, I shall be satisfied, beholding your likeness.” It reminds me of a favorite book title, “They Became What They Beheld.” The more I behold Jesus—the more I gaze on Him, think on Him, consider Him and His ways, the more like Him I will be. And that’s my goal…more of His kindness, goodness, faithfulness, compassion…and on and on. Let’s behold Jesus as we pray Morning Prayer today.
