30 Days With Wesley – Day 2: God the Creator & Savior

30 Days with Wesley(Optional Reading: 2 Thessalonians 3:10-13)

The focus of today’s prayers was on majesty of God. Even though the prayers were similar to yesterday’s, I felt as if they were focused on a different aspect of God’s greatness. This is the beauty of scripture being used as prayers. It might mean or emphasize something different to each person the reads and prays the passage.

Today I felt the focus turn to aspect of God the Creator and Savior. Yesterday I wrote and shared how I feel Christians, including myself, sometimes forget the true majesty of God. God is part of every moment of our lives. He becomes like a good friend (which is a good thing), but the side effect is that we forget that our friend is THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE! You know what I mean? 

The prayers today reminded me of the amazing truth that my friend is THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. Though at the same time, He is the God who came down to this earth and died to save me. Further, this GOD OF THE UNIVERSE loves me so much and wants to be apart of every little detail of my life. 

Perhaps, this is the true example of God’s majesty. THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE is so full of grace, mercy, hope, compassion and unstoppable love, He seeks after us as damaged and lost people to help restore us and be in relationship with us. 

 

God may we remember that you are the God of the universe. You are the God that created all and yet you seek us out. You desire the best for us. Thank you for your grace. Thank you for your mercy. Thank you for your hope and your compassion. Thank you for your unstoppable love that can soften hearts and change lives. May we live our lives today in a humble response to your grace, mercy, hope, compassion and love.

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those

who sin against us.

Save us from the time of trial,

and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours,

now and forever.

Amen.
