This week marks the seventh anniversary of Prayerworks Studio, and as I shared, this ministry has been – first and foremost – a journey of faith for me. To mark the occasion, I offer this devotion that invites us to trust in the God who is always calling us to a journey of deep love.
Cross: Faithful God,
Invitatory Bead: you continually call us to journey towards you in faith
Resurrection Bead: with your Son, Jesus Christ.
First Cruciform Bead: Your call may come at expected or unexpected times and places. Help me to pay attention and listen for the ways in which you are calling me.
Week Beads, Set 1: Use each bead to pay attention and listen for the ways in which God is calling you to go deeper in your journey of faith.
Second Cruciform Bead: Your call may seem impossible, beyond my abilities or comfort level. Help me to trust you and walk forward in courage.
Week Beads, Set 2: Use each bead to practice trusting God and praying for the courage to step out in faith.
Third Cruciform Bead: You call me to walk boldly towards you, using the full measure of my gifts, time, and other resources. Help me to live boldly into your call, holding nothing back.
Week Beads, Set 3: Use each bead to consider the gifts God has given you to use and share in your faith journey.
Fourth Cruciform Bead: May my journey of faith be about moving closer to you, loving you more deeply, and – above all – bringing you glory.
Week Beads, Set 4: Use each bead to maintain focus on God, so that your journey is devoted to bringing glory to God.
Resurrection Bead: In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ,
Invitatory Bead: who walks with me every step of the way.
Meditation (to be repeated with each bead): I trust and walk boldly towards God.
