Ripples of love for the Lord in life and death

Ripples of love for the Lord in life and death

"If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord." - Romans 14:8

In this land where hardship and troubles are normal, let us take some time to remember that we are the Lord's.

All too often, we notice the needs around us, yet, as we may all have forgotten, when He set his seal of ownership on us and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, we have become his people,  his responsibility, from life to death and everything in between. 

Lord, our Father, we offer You our lives

Open our hearts as we bow our knees before You

As we lift our prayers, works, joys, and sufferings,

fill us with Your love, with the awesome privilege of being Your creation.

For the holy intentions of Your heart, we surrender

our whole being and all our thoughts, words and actions, dear Father

Send Your Spirit to cleanse our life and heart

that you may be pleased as we offer ourselves.

Ripples of love for the Lord in life and death

For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself.

Holy Father, let everything we see today

and everything we do or say

be done and said for Your glory

that we may cherish Your gift of life more closely.

Grant us the devoted heart of Your faithful,

Bless us with your love that surpasses knowledge,

Purify our souls and make our hearts full

with courage and boldness to go Your way.

In Your name, we offer our nation,

Heal us from the effects of the culture of death

In your hands, we entrust our worries, cares, and troubles

In your Wisdom, we place our path and direction

As we struggle to understand who we are, o Lord

make us see You in us, as we devote ourselves to prayer.

Help us be watchful and thankful

that we may develop a devoted heart.

Strengthen us with the hope that with You, nothing is impossible

that our hearts may be filled with all the fullness of God.

In your name,

Amen.
