Jesus, help us know we are worthy no matter what we do or don’t do. Our worth is SETTLED because of you dying on the cross and raising again to new life. Oh dear Jesus, whisper, shout, and SING worth over us today. Be our best cheerleader. Encourage specifically. We trust You for security even as we battle our own insecurity. Amen.

Jesus, be super close to us this Monday. Would you bring a brand new perspective to today? Would you intervene and help and open our eyes to what You are doing in our lives? Help us to believe You, to truly believe Your words about life, grace, hope, and our future. We want to be quiet enough, settled enough to hear Your sacred voice today. Speak life, dear Jesus, speak life. Help us ALL when we’re tired, overworked and feeling small. We love You Lord and live to glorify You. Amen.

Jesus, please free us today. Free us from the pain others have inflicted on us. Show us where we’ve hurt others and shine your grace there so we can love from our pain. We don’t want to live with hearts closed, fists clenched or lives embittered. Set us free to love, to open our hearts again to possibility of authentic community. Teach us through Your presence to live with open hearts bound in community with others through Your grace. Amen.

Jesus, please be with us today. We so much want to embrace Your joy. You know our every wound, every fear. Heal them. Help us to rejoice alongside you. Fulfill our God-sized dreams in Your timing. As we prepare to celebrate Easter, help us grasp the supreme love of the cross. In this season of spring, of growing, wash our hearts with Your compassion. Grow us up so we fix our eyes only on You. We need You, Jesus. Amen.
