Two Prayers Based on Luke 12-13

summer in the scriptures luke (5)

Prayer based on Luke 12:22-34

“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?”
– Jesus, Luke 12:25

Eternal One
Overcoming One
Author of Life and New Life

Free me from worry
Break the chains of dread
Loose the doors of perspective

So I may see your path of hope
and follow

Luke 13:10-17
Jesus Heals a Crippled Woman on the Sabbath

Lord of the Sabbath
King of Glory
Lift up our face

We are bent
Bowed low in stature and spirit

So much is out of our control
So much we have brought upon ourselves

What can we see with our eyes on the dust?

You see our need
Your blessing twisted
Your word weaponized
Fear and Falsehood
Shame and Gatekeeping

Lord of the Sabbath
King of Glory
Lift up our face

Enter in with Your blessing
Your welcome
Your healing
Your strength
Your truth
Your salvation
Your glory


For the next few months, I’m reading a chapter from the Gospels each day. This is part of the Summer in the Scriptures reading plan sponsored by the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Click Here for the reading plan.

You’re most welcome to read along and to join the Facebook discussion group, Summer in the Scriptures. You don’t need to be a Methodist or attend a Methodist church. All are welcome and all means all.

As part of the Facebook group, I’ve been supplying prayers based on the day’s reading. Feel free to post your prayers and observations based on the readings here or there as well.

May the grace of the Gospels, the challenge, and the call, inspire us to great faith and great good works in Jesus’ name. – Lisa <
