Prayer for Peace in this Day

Father,
Today belongs to you, as I do.
I pray that I have a heart that is filled with the remembrance of you.
Please let every part of me know that I belong to you though I walk
in this world, this life and feel, sense and think through
the wondrous creation that you have made, called “me”!

Help “me” to know your peace amidst the chaos of this world.
Help me to walk by the power of Your Spirit, filled by your ever-present Love.
Guard me against the temptation to be swayed by passing storms and anxieties.

Let me remember that You are my root and my cause.
Let me remember that the peace of your Son rules my heart.
Let me live in the constant hope of deep belief so that joy abounds in me and spreads to each act and each step that I take.

Let my life become worship of You,
and it’s aroma- one of loving Peace 
given with gratitude and joy.

in Jesus Name,
Amen

“Woman Heart Rising” poetry from LWillows

WomanHeartBeloved
Woman heart rising, feeling its way
Through a night passing, now in light’s day.
Easing through slivers, through curtains that veil
Hollowed out chambers that speak in a soft wail.

This is a river, one bending and long
Waters so yielding, faithful and strong.
Throughout tides calling, all falling to One
Searching the vast for the ocean’s first Sun.

Woman heart rising, called out to pray,
Full in the stretch of unwinding new day.
Binding the wounds of all valleys that thirst,
Such is the healing that rains in heart’s burst.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”
1 Peter 5:10

And of His fullness have we all received, and grace for grace.
John 1:16
