Day 5 Evening

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." - Isaiah 43:18-19

Tonight we pray that You would give us eyes to see the new thing that You are doing in our lives, Lord. May we trust You like never before - even when we can't clearly see the path before us, we know that You are working within us.

We sang about the Lord's love and faithfulness tonight. Lord, may You be enthroned upon our lives! We want You to be at the center of our hearts - nothing else in this world will compare or satisfy us like Your unfailing love. We stand in awe of your grace and Your goodness. Would Your Holy Spirit meet us in the ordinary, mundane parts of our lives?

A word that was spoken tonight was the word "dismantled". Dismantled means to take apart or dissemble something. In order for the Lord to do a deep work in us, we need to often be dismantled in order for His work to deeply change us. Being dismantled is often an uncomfortable process, and it's not like us in our human nature to trust the process of being dismantled or uncomfortable. Lord, would you give us Your strength as You grow us in patience and endurance as You teach us to trust You in times where we feel that we're at the end of ourselves. Help us to cling to You!

May we continue to choose to trust in the Lord and choose joy amidst life's hardships and battles. Thank you Lord that you are a God that listens and cares for us so intimately! We praise You for how You've worked tonight and how chains are being broken.

See you tomorrow morning in the prayer chapel at 6am!
