Praycation 2015 – Got Light?
“Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.”
The Word for today is LIGHT
Life happens. It happens in expected ways and at unexpected times. When life happens, we like it to be nice and neat, quick and easy. Our coping mechanisms jump in and we focus on our own challenges of the day.
But wait! Someone else in your sphere of influence is dealing with “life happens” . It’s not nice, neat quick or clean. It’s messy, unfair and oppressive. Beloved, is there enough of this in you to recognize the brothers and sisters around you? As you enter into the throne room of God, I pray that the Light of God shine in you, and through you today!

LET US PRAY
God of the Oppressed, in a world of pain, forgive our insensitivity, in a world of suffering, forgive our ease, in a world of injustice, forgive our fears, in a world of inequity, forgive our excess and in a world of uncivilized discord, forgive our silence.
God of grace and glory, shine through us today in meaningful and tangible ways towards others. Let us hear the cries of the weak, helpless and homeless. Show us ways to alleviate the suffering of the oppressed and change the policies that continue to create it. In Jesus name, amen.
