For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.  Psalm 100:5

“We again give you…”  Have you ever been on a weekend retreat where there’s a spiritual catharsis on Saturday night at the communion service?  These Magic Moments are where we commit something in our life to God.  It could be a dream, a hope a decision, or a disappointment.  Or, perhaps we give him the request/burden that we’ve been carrying for years.  They’re wonderful times.  So how is it that the peace can sometimes disappear in 24 hours?  I think it’s because we crossed our fingers while we prayed.  Or we picked up that burden again on our way out of the chapel. Some trials need to be laid at his feet again and again and again.  Keep at it.  With supernatural help, there is victory ahead.

Lord, Jesus,

We have come here to praise you and to sing your glory

We pause before you to praise you and stand in your glory and to know you better

Lord, in giving you our worship we ask that you would transform us

We ask that you would assure us and remind us of your faithfulness to us

Because there is a seemingly endless list of situations and people that leave us worried and overwhelmed

Lord, please renew our confidence in you and in your love

Lord, we give to you our best selves and ask that you inspire us to be your servants wherever we find ourselves

Lord, we also give to you our hidden selves and ask that you shine your light on the parts of us that long for healing and for deliverance

Lord, we give you thanks for never shying away from us or being shocked at any secrets we harbor and for always responding to us with grace and mercy
