For You

My prayer for you today.

Father please help us to remember that those who have hurt us and sinned against us are just as worthy of Your love as we are. Remind us that they are also worthy of our love and show us how to give that love to them. We are forgiven by the blood of Your son and so are they. Free us today. Free us from anything that stands between us and You so that we can accept Your amazing grace and love with pure and loving hearts. Free us of the chains that have held us captive in our head and heart so that we can be closer to You. Thank you for Your son and what His death on the cross means in our lives. In Jesus sweet and precious name, Amen.

Shake Me

God, pick me up and shake me. Shake me until everything that does not belong on me falls to the ground. Shake my life until all of the things that are weighing me down detach themselves from me and crumble at Your feet. Shake off the materialistic things that I have clung so tightly to. Shake off my fear. Shake off my doubt. Shake off my bitterness. When it has all fallen and I can see it in a messy pile please give me the courage to walk away from it. God, pick me up and shake me.
