Creator of Perfection

When You finished Your creative work, You declared, “It is very good.” Before mankind decided we could make our own rules, it was perfect and without any kind of blemish.

Since we took control, the earth has been transformed from perfection to chaos.

Father, we are lost, blinded and confused. There is no escape from the desperate situation our rebellion and stubborn refusal to acknowledge Your lordship has created.

My spirit is crushed as I learn more of the depths of depravity the “wisdom” of mankind is capable of reaching.

How desperate is our need? How scant our recognition of our failures? Reveal Yourself mighty in our daily lives. Shine Your light into the depths of our darkness.

Empower me…I want to be part of the solution but I’m helpless without You.

AMEN

Giver of Life

The universe was without form or substance…then You spoke and everything came into being. At Your command there was where there had been only darkness and life where there had been no life.

I cannot explain it but my very existence proves Your mighty power.

In the face of all this the human race which only exists by Your grace declares themselves wiser and more capable than it’s Creator.

I am guilty of this hubris when I think I can handle things without You. Forgive me my arrogance…remind me of my insignificance without You. It is You and You alone that gives my existence meaning and hope.

I am just one of untold millions of Americans too often deceived by this lie. Reveal Yourself fresh and new to us…don’t abandon America…rescue her.

AMEN

Scripture:
“In the beginning God (Elohim) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1

Author of my Salvation

I love You…not for all the mighty things You’ve done, but simply because of who You are. You rescued me; gave me a place in Your family; love me and are my Rock.

Our colleges and universities…especially the elite ones…have become infested with people of great worldly wisdom. They are pursuing the allure of “…you can be like God, knowing good and evil.” But the allure is like a mirage and the harder we chase it, the thirstier and more frustrated we become.

Shine the truth of Your wisdom across this land. Teach us that there is no future in trying to replace Your truth with the wisdom this earth has to offer.

Save us from ourselves and reign again in our hearts. Begin with me!

AMEN

Scripture:
“For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be open and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5
