“Grace is God walking into your world with a sparkle in his eye and an offer that’s hard to resist. ‘Sit still for a bit. I can do wonders with this mess of yours.’ ” 1
Life and the challenges we face can leave us perplexed. This “mess” can bring distress. Rather than rush into action, or sit in sullen solitude God calls us to pray.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” 2
Today I am at the Minnesota Prayer Breakfast.
Our focus…Simply Jesus. “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” (John 12:32).
We’re praying for our state, our nation and our world: “Written by Steve Moore, the MPB Scripture and Prayer of the day is a great way to start each day.”
Lord, broaden my mind to understand how at the same time you can be taking care of the whole world and taking care of just me. I want to receive my daily basket with awe and gratitude for who you are. Amen.
Join us and pray!
