Thank You for the freedom that You have given us. Too often we live chained to insecurities, hurts, and fears. Would You help us move forward today? You hold the keys to set us free from that which holds us back.
You have given us the gifts of breath, time, and creativity. May we be good stewards and use these gifts for Your glory and fame. May we follow Your lead—not running ahead nor lagging behind. May we keep in step with Your Spirit.
Thank You for the ideas that You have placed within us. Thank You for the talents that You have given.
Please forgive us for operating independently of You. We have no good thing apart from You. We are in desperate need of You.
There are wonderful aspects to being a dreamer. Help us not be prideful when things are going well. There are challenging things about being a dreamer. Help us not to give up when we face obstacles. Whether we find ourselves on the heights, depths, or somewhere in between, may we stay the course as You lead the way.
Thank You that we are not alone on this journey. Help us to reach out to others and encourage them as they move forward. May we not minimize nor idolize the dreams of others, but encourage them to be faithful to the path set before them.
On this Independence Day, may we remember all the dreamers that have gone before us. May we honor their sacrifice by being faithful with both the little and the big. Forgive us for minimizing the ordinary and the small. Help us to remember that small might be the new big.
You are Trustworthy even when life unfolds differently than expected. You can do the impossible. Nothing is too hard for You. Help us to release the results of our dreams to you. You can do more than we can even imagine.
You know the things than can destroy and You can see our blind spots. Help us to stay close to You, our Creator. You are the inventor of creativity, help us to magnify You above the works of our hands. Forgive us for making more of the gift than You, the Giver.
Lord, we want to produce sweet fruit. We desire our work to be pleasing to You. Help us to remain close to You, grounded in Your Word, and loyal to Your lead. Keep us from acting independently of You. We need You. You are the Master Artist and the Author of our stories. May we fix our eyes on You, incline our ears to hear from You, and use our feet to fully follow You.
We offer You our minds, our hearts, our time, our lives for Your purposes Lord.
Thank You for creating us to be dreamers. May we light up our community with Your light.
