Prayer for Thursday
Dear Father in Heaven, grant us Your most precious Spirit so that here on earth we may be united with You in Jesus Christ the Savior, as He abides in us and we abide in Him. May truth dawn on us with the Spirit’s light, bringing joy no matter what happens to us. May all the pain in our lives be turned into birth pangs of a new life in which we can rejoice as the people You have created, the people You have prepared for the struggle on earth, who are called into battle and led to victory. Grant that we may not be blinded by the surrounding darkness, but allow Your light shining through us to chase away that darkness. Shed a clear light on the new life that is coming. May we see what has already happened because Jesus Christ came to this earth and He remains on this earth in our hearts and united with our spirits, and may we see what is still to come through Him, as our Savior and Redeemer. Oh awesome God of wonders, keep us aware of the wonders that increasingly surround us, until all the pain on earth is finally overcome and we peoples glorify Your love and Your great goodness without constraint. In the name of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, we humbly, yet confidently beseech You.
