This Week's Breath Prayer

God of promise, the only blessing I seek is to know you're using me. 

This week’s breath prayer comes from Julie Stransky and is based on Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV). The prayer is:

 

God of promise, the only blessing I seek is to know you're using me..

 

A breath prayer is a short prayer — a sentence or less — that you can memorize then pray throughout the day wherever you are. It is a style of prayer from early Christian times that remains as powerful today as ever. You can speak the words aloud or to yourself toward a goal of unceasing prayer and a continuing connection to God amid the joys and challenges of daily living.

 

Members of Cedaredge Community United Methodist Church have shared breath prayers based on Scripture passages that have special meaning in their lives. Wednesday of each week, we are offering a new breath prayer for you to pray for a week. If you would like to submit a prayer, please email it to Dana Jones at danaellenjones@gmail.com. We hope these prayers will have power in your life and in our collective life as a congregation.

 

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) says:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
