Divine Conversations #1

“He has shown you, O man, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?”

“…to Act Justly”
Lord God, stir in our hearts a holy indignation for injustice.  May your righteousness so burn within our spirits that we are compelled to stand up for the vulnerable, defenceless and voiceless of our society.  Open our eyes and hearts to the injustices of our world.  Challenge our own attitudes and actions that may inadvertently contribute to injustice.

“…to Love Mercy/Kindness”
Lord God, may we not only be a people who speak up for truth, but be a people of grace that displays your mercy and kindness to a lost and hurting world.  Give us a deep compassion that sees people the way you see them, so that we may serve them as you would.  Soften our hearts and quicken our hands so that we may “do for the least of these” as though they were Christ.

“…to Walk Humbly with your God”  (Micah 6:8)  
Lord God, give us “the same attitude as that of Jesus Christ” who humbled himself “taking the very nature of a servant”.  Remove any pride that would cause us to think more highly of ourselves than we ought.  Restore within us a right image of ourselves so that we may see what our Creator sees.  May everything we think, say or do bring glory and honour to you, O Lord!

Restore your church to be the beautiful bride you called her to be.  Raise up an army of believers who will uphold righteousness (truth) and mercy (grace).

Renew a right spirit within us so that we may truly walk in your ways.

Revive a lost and broken world to claim the redemption that has been accomplished on the cross by Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
