Pray for the Generations
It's late but it is still Monday and we don't want to let the day go by without bringing our precious ones before the Lord in prayer.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day
for darkness is as light to you.
Oh God, for the beloveds, the precious ones I pray today--
Lord, I pray that your Spirit will go with everyone of them for every day of their lives. I pray that Your presence would stay close to them--that they would not want to flee from Your presence but will seek You out with all of their hearts for every day of their lives.
Oh Lord make this passage of scripture real to each one of them. Show them Your likeness, Your light.
Lord, those ones who are especially hurting today, hold them a little tighter.
Cling a little longer, warm them with Your assurance that they can make it through anything if they will only place their hope, faith and trust in You.
Purify us, Lord--our thoughts, our actions, our motives, our meditations.
Lord, would You be the Lord over all of us and we will praise You forever and ever. In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen
