Theme: Rejoice in the Lord always

 

This prayer sheet is inspired by a recurring theme in Scripture: the phrase, “Rejoice in the Lord”.

 
For personal use or to share.


Joy is distinctly a Christian word and a Christian thing. It is the reverse of happiness. Happiness is the result of what happens of an agreeable sort. Joy has its springs deep down inside. And that spring never runs dry, no matter what happens. Only Jesus gives that joy. He had joy, singing its music within, even under the shadow of the cross.
S.D. Gordon

Theme: Shelter under His wings

 
This prayer sheet is inspired by the September 2017 theme of the month: Refuge.

The psalmist says,

“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful, because I come to you for safety. In the shadow of your wings I find protection until the raging storms are over.”

(Psalm 57:1, GNT)

These prayers are a response to God’s gracious invitation to us to seek shelter “under his wings” and to bring others to safety.

Theme: Spurred on by prayer

 

This prayer sheet is a response to these words by Christian theologian and author, Frederick Buechner (pronounced BEEK-ner):

The words appear in Buechner’s book, Telling Secrets – A Memoir, about his encounters with God’s presence in both the scary and sad as well as in the joyful moments of his life.

See the Spirituality and Practice website for a lengthy excerpt from the book showing the words in context.
