Prayer, Plain and Simple

He sends his orders to the world—
    how swiftly his word flies! (Psalm 147:15)

He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death. (Psalm 107:20)

Let every created thing give praise to the Lord,
for he issued his command, and they came into being. (Psalm 148:5)

The Word gave life to everything that was created
and his life brought light to everyone. (John 1:4)

Take some time to meditate on these truths, and pray with us.

Father of Creation,

You spoke the world into being with Your Word. Your Word brought order out of chaos. Your Word breathed life into death. Your Word is established forever. In this New Year and in every year you give me to live and move and breathe on this planet, I want to give Your Holy Word supreme authority in my life, in every decision, every thought, every dream. Adhering and trusting in Your Word, I will create a life that honors you and brings you glory. With Your mighty strength to help me, Your perfect Wisdom to guide me, and Your rich grace to keep me, this is my greatest desire and my humble goal. Lead me, Father.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
