Monday (Meditation: Luke 11:28)
Dear God, may Your latest command be my first concern. May Your latest act of mercy prompt my first act of thanksgiving. May Your latest act of forgiveness prompt my first act of forgiving someone else. May Your latest act of grace prompt my first act of reflecting Your love to others. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.
Tuesday (Meditation: Psalm 18:1-3)
O God, You are my rock and my strength. You are my redeemer and my deliverer. You are my shield and my salvation. You are my stronghold in whom I take refuge. You save me from anxiety and fear. You hear my prayers and You deliver me. I praise You, O Lord, my strength and my salvation. Amen.
Wednesday (Meditation: Psalm 150)
God, I am grateful that You are the Mighty God Who created the whole universe, yet You hold me in Your hands. I am grateful that You are the Wonderful Counselor Who guides me when I turn over my life to You. I am grateful that You are the Prince of Peace Who takes away my fears and brings peace in my heart. I am grateful that You are the Everlasting Father Who calls me by name each day to new life with You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Thursday (Meditation: Psalm 103:8-12)
God, I stand before You just as I am: a person with impatience and intemperance, with guilt and sorrow, with greed and hostility, with envy and resentments, with doubts and failures, with pride and worldly attachments. God, I lay these at the foot of the Cross. Accept me, forgive me, and restore me, thorough the suffering, the blood, and the resurrection of Your Son. Amen.
Friday (Meditation: Isaiah 55: 6-7)
God, life is a paradox. Today we scientifically control more and more of the world, but the world seems more and more out of control. Time is paramount, but the roses we want to smell are ever more remote. There are more leagues, richer players, and bigger stadiums, but they have less loyalty and less respect. God, we are all part of the rat race. Help us to be still every day, to feed on Your Word, and to listen for Your still small voice. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
