Praying the creed: 2

I believe: Today I believe because I have felt loved and protected during the past week.

I believe in God.  I believe in God as an omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent.

God who is and was and will be, knew me before I was made, was there at my forming, birth and gave me life.  Continually He is with me each and every second of every day.  As I come to Him  I will deliberately control my breath quietening my spirit before Him.

Lord,  take me as I am just now.  I acknowledge that today, yesterday, this past week I have erred and not been true to You.  My bowed head and quietened heart are my signs of contrition accept them Lord in Your true compassion.

God who knows all also lives and moves and has his presence throughout the universe at all times.  There is no day, no night, no time and seasons.  I can focus on Him and be in commune with all life everywhere.

Lord,  I hold up before You a world that seems to have lost it’s way.  There is greed, anger and destruction all around.  People are hurting, are lonely, are poor in spirit and in need.  Many are in prisons – either physical or emotional feeling trapped and scared with nowhere to go and no-one to turn to.  Take these my thoughts, inner feelings and sorrow Lord and in Your goodness and mercy offer healing and strength to all.  

God who knows all and is all around is all powerful.  The power of God calms storms, turns water into wine, feeds His people, heals the sick and raises the dead.  I too can claim that power for my life as I minister to His people.

Lord, take me, take my hands, my feet, my voice and my heart and move me among those that are crying.  Lead me to those that need a touch of grace.  Open my heart and mind to those that I see around me and may I bring peace, love and strength as I work this week.

I believe in God and I believe God is.  I believe that He will walk with me this week and will be in everything I do and say.  I believe He knows me and trusts me to do His work. I believe His grace to forgive, His power to Save and His promise of life everlasting.
