Good afternoon, Genesis!
For today’s 3:16 prayer, I invite you to read this C.S. Lewis quote
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild
that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is
getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew
that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He
starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not
seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He
is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out
a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making
courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but
He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.”
― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
Let us pray: Heavenly father, thank you for rebuilding us. Thank you for coming into our lives to change us from the inside out. Help us remember that our lives are without meaning if we don’t have you. Spirituality is the answer to life; we exist to house your holy spirit. Using your spirit, help us to use love, kindness, and understanding with others. We love you, Lord. We pray for healing, peace, and calm in and around us today.
