Prayer 222: God’s amazing love

Dear God

In the midst of all the distractions and ups and downs of this life, I more often than not lose sight of the fact of how much You love me. You love me so much that even if I were the only person in the world, You would still send Jesus to save me. Thank You for your constantly seeking love, and help me to be more willing to be found. Thank You.

Prayer 67: the miracle of Jesus

Dear God

In the Christian book I’m reading at the moment, I enjoyed the description of the Trinity as being the ‘making, mending and sustaining’ aspects of Yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

It did strike me, however, that it all seems rather unfair on Jesus, Who must surely have by far the largest role of You all, as there is such an enormous amount of mending to do in this broken world of ours. So thank You for Jesus!

And happy Christmas to you all!

Prayer 42: oddities from Isaiah and Jesus

Dear God

Today I read in the bible about Isaiah going around naked just to demonstrate a prophecy, and Jesus being really rather rude to the host at a dinner party to try to get His point across. Goodness, what a way to start my day! Help me to remember that You don’t do things the way I do and to be open to the possibility that there might be more going on under the surface of any situation I’m in.

Though, being me, I am definitely not going to start going around naked or shouting at dinner parties – and I’m sure You (and my friends and neighbours) are very pleased to hear it … Thank You.
