Blessing Our Cities #13

This week we pray together for the blessings of abundant life.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (New Living Translation)

7 “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
Such trees are not bothered by the heat
or worried by long months of drought.
Their leaves stay green,
and they never stop producing fruit.

God of abundance, we pray together once again for the people of our cities, towns and villages, the people where we minister, live, work, and play. We ask for both ourselves and for those around us to experience more than mere existence. We pray for the joy that comes from continual fresh discovery of the reason you sent Jesus to this world, "...that they might have life, and have it abundantly." May we be alive with your kind of life, trusting, and resting in peace that comes from faith. And may that overflow to those around us. Amen

And now a little rocky Jesus music to help wake you up and start your day! Don't say I didn't warn you. I pray blessings of Life Abundant for you today!
