Luke 10:5-6 Whenever you enter a house, first say, ‘May peace be on this house.’ If anyone there shares God’s peace, then your peace will rest on that person. If not, your blessing will return to you.

Morning Prayer: God, may peace be on my lips and in my heart today. May everything I do and every word I say be born of peace expressed to every person I meet. If I live a life based on a foundation of peace I know that I will be able to reflect your peace back to the world in every circumstance. You have said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” It is my desire to become one of those peacemakers for through my actions the world may become a more peace-full place. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Let peace begin with you today.

Luke 10:1-2 After these things, the Lord commissioned seventy-two others and sent them on ahead in pairs to every city and place he was about to go. He said to them, “The harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers for his harvest.”

Morning Prayer: God, I come before You in prayer as Your worker. I see the harvest all around me: the fields that can be cultivated, the seeds to be sown deep in Your earth, the potential fruit that will grow as Your people work in loving service. Use me, Lord, direct me in living a life of mission today. Reveal to me the opportunities I can invite others along or inspire them to live out their own unique call as I do mine. I am open and ready for what You have in store for me. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Each day we are blessed with is a day we are commissioned by Jesus.

1 Corinthians 15:58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

Morning Prayer: God, I am thankful for the gift of work. I will bring enthusiasm and genuine joy into all that I do today knowing that nothing I do for You is useless or meaningless. I hold onto the promise that you are always working within us, and within others, to weave all things together in a way that ultimately leads to good. I pray for strength and the resolve to bring that joy and enthusiasm into all circumstances I may encounter today. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Whatever you do today, do it with your whole heart, as if offering it as a gift to God.

08/27/2021

Ephesians 5:1-2 Therefore, imitate God like dearly loved children. Live your life with love, following the example of Christ, who loved us and gave himself for us. He was a sacrificial offering that smelled sweet to God.

Morning Prayer: God, I would love to imitate a child, especially those who are so open and loving, innocent and without prejudice, embracing each day joyfully. I long to regain that simple trust, the faith they have that they are safe and loved. Sadly in this time and in this world there are many children who lose that innocence way too early, having lives filled with war, disease, hunger and fear. What sacrifice in my life can I make to share Your love? Let me love as You love; let me be bold enough to add my voice and my resources to helping those children. Let me follow the example of Christ, offering love to those at risk and on the margins. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Sometimes it is easier to turn off the news, to ignore the needs of others. Instead of turning away, I will seek knowledge and understanding, to better understand how I can be part of the solution.

Proverbs 2:7-10 God grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity. God guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him. Then you will understand what is right, just, and fair, and you will find the right way to go. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy.

Morning Prayer: God, thank you for Your promise to shield us, guard us, and protect us as we strive to walk through life with honesty, integrity, righteousness, justice, and fairness. We often struggle to find and keep to these ways. Help us to remember that You can bring great clarity to our minds and hearts in times of confusion and disorientation. By seeking Your guidance, we can have confidence in our next steps. Help us to see our own actions as spiritual practices that can continually reinforce the knowledge You have given us as we try to honor You each day. May it be so.

Morning Focus: As I interact with the world today, I will be intentional about trying to do what is right, just, and fair. I trust that God will grant me the knowledge and wisdom to discern these paths.

Colossians 3:16-17 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God.

Morning Prayer: God, with these words You have given us valuable instruction about living a Christ centered life. I want my life to be so filled with the richness of the message of Jesus that it spills over into every moment of my life. Sharing our wisdom and experiences with each other helps us to grow deeper and grow closer to each other. Entering each day with words or songs of praise and gratitude for the unending love God pours out to us will help us to shape our words, thoughts and actions in ways that please You. Help me to become more Christ-like today. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Spend some quiet time with Jesus today.

Proverbs 24:3-4 By wisdom a house is built; by understanding it is established. By knowledge rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant wealth.

Morning Prayer: God, there is so much in this world that I don’t understand, particularly during a pandemic. I don’t understand how we can be so divided. We are divided because we fail to try to understand each other, learn from each other, and respect each other, even when we disagree. Jesus was an extraordinary teacher and I continue to lean on his wisdom, to be reminded of the lessons of loving one another, no matter what our differences might be. Let my house be open and welcoming to all. All that is precious can be found in the friendships I forge with my neighbors near and far. May it be so.

Morning Focus: Look for riches not in the amount of money or possessions you have, but in how you seek to understand others and welcome them into your life.

What an incredible day of worship yesterday! We announced a wonderful financial gift that is allowing Crossroads to reinvest in kids and students. We shared that Erin Videgar-Laird will be coming on as the acting Director of Student Ministries. We blessed kids, students, teachers, and staff for the school year ahead. And we baptized a beautiful baby. What a wonderful way to celebrate all that is happening!
