Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me - Psalm 51: 10
God of power, create in me a clean heart. I confess that there are things that a blocking me from a fuller love (name them). Please forgive me Give me the discernment to know how to best remove the buildup and to best utilize the gutter guards in my spiritual life. Thank you God for your call to love those who persecute, and for the way it gives us a picture into your extravagant grace. Amen
To confess the blockages in your life to loving God Invite God to remove any debris that inhibits you from loving God more fully.
Over the next 21 days, Aldersgate UMC is invited into an intentional time of prayer for ourselves and our community, You will be receiving a daily email (FaceBook blasts too!) with scripture, questions, prayer, and a daily challenge to use during your personal prayer and devotional time. The prayers used will come from a new resource by Justin LaRosa, a UMC Deacon from Hyde Park UMC in Tampa FL. The resource is called “the Jesus Challenge” - 21 Days of loving God and Neighbor. Some other prayers will be adapted to include specific prayers for our Aldersgate community.
