If you need to be filled up for a new week…

Pen and ink by akaalias (flickr creative commons) I sit on the porch, journal in hand, thoughts swirling through my mind.

I pick up a pen just to write what I have to do this week.

I scratch a few words…and there is no ink left. Tears prick my eyes, I nod. “Yes, Lord, yes–I am empty.”

I think of you and wonder how many of you feel that way too.

Starting a new week, feeling as if you’ve run dry.

So let us come together to the One who came for us…


We are empty.

You promised us life to the full.

So we come to you and ask that you would spill out peace into our hearts.

Flow love into the places where we need it most.

Renew our strength, bring back our joy,

restore us so that we can be a living letter for you this week.

We thank you that you are the ink in our pens,

the life in our hearts, the One who gives us all we need…

and more.

We love you.


You show that you are a letter from Christ…written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. 2 Corinthians 3:3 

My friend and fellow writer, Mary DeMuth, is starting a series about healing on her blog this week. If you’ve ever been hurt, will you come with me and read a post I wrote there today? You can tell us how we can pray for you too…just click here.
