Reading Galatians 6:10
In prayer, I receive.
I receive life as I intercede.
Each prayer blesses me and encourages me.
Each prayer teaches me.
Each prayer is blessing.
Each blessing is multiplied by our Lord each day.
In prayer, I find Jesus by me.
In prayer, I am again with those I serve.
We walk together.
In serving, I give and I receive,
This active work energizing me,
This active work strengthening me.
In serving, I love, and yet I am loved more.
In serving, I walk with those,
As a servant, I am richly blessed.
A lowly servant, I am a disciple.
Forgiven now, I am renewed.
Forgiven, I struggle to forgive myself.
When finally I forgive me, great weights are lifted.
Forgiven, I am new.
Forgiven, I am bright as the new day.
The light of the Word shines on me and around me.
Joy in the Word!
Forgiving, I express Christ.
Mutual in forgiving, forgiveness is good.
Mutual in grace, I am with Christ.
Knowing grace, I am fresh, lush, green.
The light is bright; it is warm.
The vine grows in Communion.
