Father God, you are the God who hears our prayers. They come from the pain and joy of living. So many, so much overflowing, overwhelming. Yet, you continue to work for the greater good and for your glory. Remind us that you are making something new in us, around us and through us. Present perfect participle, making, making now, and continuing to make something new. Point our attention to your glory in the outcome. Plant the desire to know this new thing. Increase our discontent with where we are so that we embrace the changes in us the Holy Spirit makes. Make a way where there seems to be none. Lead us to want more of you, Jesus, until you fill all we are. Satisfy our thirst for you from your streams in the desert. I ask these things in your name and authority, Lord, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43: 19 ESV)
