prayer at the crossroads
LORD, today you have challenged me by your word to reflect grace in my relationships, and I want to do that.
John said of you that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” you reflected the glory of heaven. I want to do that too.
I especially want to be an agent of grace to the people you have blessed me with in my family, my church, my friends, the people I casually encounter, and the people I minister to by my writings.
I believe that I have received grace from you, and that I can be a reflection of that grace. I also know that by allowing my flesh to prevail I can hinder that reflection. Cleanse the mirror of my life by your Holy Spirit so that I reflect you in purity, without distortion.
I believe that I, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, am “being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” I pray that I will always be a willing participant in the process.
I pray that many others come into your kingdom after seeing it reflected in my life.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
