Prayer for faith

Father, please still my heart and quiet my mind.
How my soul needs to rest with you.
I confess that often my thoughts are scattered,
that my mind can feel overwhelmed with worry and endless demands.
I give all these concerns to you now.

In the stillness I become aware of my own beating heart,
and of the life you sustain within me and around me.
I notice my own breathing.
Thank you that with each passing breath you bring your gentle life-giving touch.
Thank you that I am a miracle of your design and I carry your Spirit within.

Lord, I declare that I believe in you. Thank you that your beloved Son is risen and alive forevermore!
Come fill my spirit afresh with new faith.
I lift my soul to praise you, and my heart rejoices as I come boldly before your throne.
Lead me as I pray for others, come inspire my thoughts as I intercede for those that are on my mind. Please guide me now by the power of your Holy Spirit as I bring these concerns before you.
Father, thank you that you are the Light of Lights, the great Power of all Powers and your Kingdom will know no end. How I worship, love and adore you.

Almighty Graceful One
(a prayer for strength and patience)

I need to give out so much more than I can give alone.
I need the strength that comes from you, Almighty graceful one.
I need the strength of wisdom, so that just like a tree, I can grow roots deep in you, that others do not see.
I need the strength of gentle peace, so that just like the sea, I can rise and fall each day and lead others gently onwards.
I need the strength of steady love so that just like wind, I can blow or hold my breath with patience deep and kind.
I need to give out much more than I can give alone.
I need the strength that comes from you, Almighty graceful one.

Prayer For Hope and Strength

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Almighty God,
You reach into the darkness with hope, truth and light. Stretch out your strong hand in this situation, hold and rescue those who have suffered. Let your almighty love move mountains, cross seas and breathe life into the darkest places.

Light that redeems.
Light that restores.
Light that heals.
Light that protects.
Light that saves.

There is nothing higher, stronger or greater than your love.
We trust in you.
