Prayer 225: A moving miracle!

Dear God

Thank you that this week’s work moves are now, miraculously, on track and it looks like everyone will be where they should be next week after all, hurrah! I’m hugely grateful for your help with this one, I can tell You. I pray that the next set of moves happening next week will be okay too – as I will definitely need Your help again. Thank You!

Prayer 223: A spirit of adventure

Dear God

When the unexpected happens, give me strength not to be frightened of it (how I hate change!) but instead to see Your miraculous workings at its heart. Give me a spirit of adventure to overcome my usual fears and to follow Your promptings more closely. Thank You.

Prayer 218: The bad and the good

Dear God

Why is it that bad things happen in crowds and good things just one at a time? Isn’t there a way to balance that out so we get a more even experience of the good and the bad – surely that would be a more sensible way of running things? Just a thought … Anyway, while I’m here, attempting to pray, please could You help me to cope with the bevy of bad things that are happening and make the most of the odd miracle of the good? Thank You.

Prayer 212: A disaster averted

Dear God

Thank You for looking after me yesterday so the car crash I could so easily have caused didn’t happen at all. I’m very grateful for Your help, especially as the other car involved would have been a neighbour, so You can imagine how extra awful that would have been! Help me then to be more alert in the car, even when my mind is on other things, and to drive with wholehearted care and consideration for others. Thank You.

Prayer 194: God’s birthday

Dear God

Thank You for birthdays, and the happiness of having one special day that is truly our own. It’s such fun to be made a fuss of, I have to say! Thank You also for sending Jesus and for His special birthday too. Thank You for being a God Who truly cares about us and Who truly shares our humanity in every way. You do more for us than we can ever ask for or imagine. Thank You.

Prayer 187: the mysteries of Lazarus

Dear God

The miracle of Lazarus is always breath-taking, no matter how many times I read it. Thank You for Your great power and mercy in bringing to life things that are long dead, and giving us hope where there is none.

Still, I do often wonder how his second chance at life was for Lazarus and how terrible it must have been when the authorities started to persecute him too. Help us to remember that just because we have received a great blessing doesn’t mean there won’t be pain too – and give us the grace to bear it. Thank You.

Prayer 186: the joy of equal marriage

Dear God

Thank You so much that love wins over everything else, every time. Thank You for the wonderful gift therefore of love and marriage, and thank You for the marvellous news from America this weekend that so many more people can now share in the gift of marriage. Hallelujah!
