Monday 6-1-20 prayer

Published June 2, 2020 by Pastor Vicki in Daily Prayer

A Prayer a Day: Good afternoon, Lord. If you had a phone this would be your dinner call. It’s June 1st, 2020; it seems like May was six weeks long, but I know that’s not right. I like the first anything: June 1st marks a new month, which makes me wonder about my ability to make things new. I would like to make things new. I don’t seem to have that ability at all. But, you, God, have the ability to make all things new. Revelation 21:5, you, Lord, said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” The whole Bible is full of stories of ordinary people, that you made new, from Saul being knocked off his donkey and getting a new name, to Mary Madeline, whose total life changed. You, Lord, are in the making new business. 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” I see in both these scriptures the word, “Behold,” which means look here! You, God, are always making something happen worth seeing. Lord, we count on you to keep us going when we feel old and tired. We know you can make us new, that you can give us new eyes to see, new ears to hear, and new strength to embrace each other with love. Come Holy Spirit and make us new: amen.
