A little big prayer
Lord, Bless me, indeed. Enlarge my territory. Put your hand on me and never remove it. Keep me from harm and from causing pain. Be with me in a big way because you're a big God. The One and Only. Amen. From The Prayer of Jabez, 1 Chronicles 4:10

A prayer against betrayal
Dear Lord Jesus, Tonight is the night you were betrayed. You had your last dinner with your close friends, and Peter said he'd die for you, and Judas Iscariot slipped out to meet the Pharisees and collect his 30 pieces of silver. Then you took the disciples...

Confession from a control-freak
Lord of Lords, I want you to be present in my life. I even want you to be in control-- so why do I chafe against life's constraints, against unwanted circumstances? Why do I grumble about the time it takes for you to work in my life? Why do I say I want you...
