Let It

Opening Prayer: Lord Jesus, you say, “Let my peace rule in your heart” and “Let my word dwell in your richly.” All I have to do is let them. Why do I make it so difficult?

Scripture: Colossians 3:15-17

Journal: Is Christ’s peace ruling in your heart? Is Christ’s word dwelling in you richly? If not, why not? Why are you not letting them have their place in you?

Reflection:

let it

let my peace
rule in your heart

let my word
dwell in you richly

let my truth
set you free

let my love
transform you

it will
if you let it

Prayer for the church, for others, for myself

Pray today for the church that F and S attend that has decided to begin a ministry to Syrian refugees.
