Shut Door Prayers
"Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door."
Matthew 6: 6
Merciful God, we have shut the door against the intrusions of the day. We who are weary from the challenges and changes of this uncertain season seek rest in your eternal chanagelessness. You are the same yesterday, today and forever more.
Speak now a word that dispels the clouds of doubt and fear. Speak a word that will sustain us in the mundane or monumental moments ahead. Speak a word that will strengthen our hands for the work before us, our hearts for any burdens to bare and renew our minds to make decisions that honor you.
In this shut door prayer, whisper your instructions so that we may emerge to do your will. In Jesus Name, Amen.
