Prayerdownload (2)

Dear Lord,

Monday morning.  The beginning of a work or school week for many.  We continue in prayer as we anticipate another beginning on September 7th – that of our 31-week study in The Story.  Just as we prepare for our work week or days at school, so we prepare for this time of studying your word together.  Chapter 1 awaits us – “Creation – The Beginning of Life as we Know It.”  We approach this beginning with hope, anticipation, curiosity, and perhaps some questions (questions are great!).  Guide us as we prepare to set out on this journey.  Amen 


In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.  Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.  And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.    — Gen 1:1-5
