Prayer: 01-22-09

God,

Use Contrast. Use it to bring people to You. Help us create works of art that reflect Your magnitude as Creator. Help us to run to this world, God, instead of shrinking back in fear or disgust. Give us Your eyes, Father, to see those around as You see them. 

Grant us favor, God. Bless us.  Bless us financially so we can accomplish the tasks You give us. Bless us creatively so we can earn favor with our peers and critics. May the art we create be the quality that reflects Your goodness and draw people to what You want to say to them. Give us the skill we are going to need, God.

We love you.

One Response to “Prayer: 01-22-09”

  1. Abba Father!!!

    Thank you for the difficult yet beautiful process of Your refining fire. Thank you that you’re using bumps and difficult circumstances to purify this movement. I pray that through this time, You would raise up artists who are not afraid to express the feelings of pain, regret, hurt, sadness, joy, delight, relief, and awe as they go through this journey called life and learn to be available for Christ and allow His life to be lived through them… in every single area of their life.

    I pray that You would EXPOSE truth through photography, paintings, sculptures, poems, music, and drawings… to shed LIGHT amongst the deep darkness that we live in day in and day out.

    Thank you that You are LIGHT! And we live in LIGHT because of Christ!

    Your Words says,

    “For you were once in darkness, but now you are LIGHT in the Lord. Live as children of LIGHT (for the fruit of the LIGHT consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather EXPOSE them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything EXPOSED by the LIGHT becomes visible, for it is the LIGHT that makes everything visible.
    (Ephesians 4:8-13a)

    Father, this movement and ministry is Yours. Please EXPOSE Your LIGHT in every artist’s heart… so they experience You first and foremost… and then express that experience with You as an act of worship…which in return sheds more LIGHT in this dark world.
