Prayer to Transform

Father, bust us out of the bubble!  Help us move from living the safest life as possible where no one gets hurt, and into a courageous life of serving You!

Like Timothy challenged his friends, "This is why I remind you to FAN THE FLAMES of the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." -2 Timonthy 6-7

Take that little spark we have for You, that thing we feel we could do that no one else can do for You, and place it in front of the fan of motivation so it ignites into a FIRE! Transform our lives from mediocre to meaningful!  -In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer for Protection

My God, protect us. Let nothing harm us.  Do not let depression take hold, do not let anxiety overcome us, do not let fear stop us.  Preserve our joy!

For Your word says, "Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me." -Psalm 138:7  

Lord, stretch out Your hand before us, put Your strong shield in front of us, surrounding us, so no one and nothing will be allowed to hurt us, distract us, steal our joy, or to lead us away from You. 

Thank You Father for protecting us from ourselves, those things we have begged You for that haven't happened yet... let us see that as Your protection from something that wasn't good for us in the first place!  -In Jesus' name, Amen.
