Lent Reflection: Prayer of Restoration (Philippians 2: 9-11)

Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.Philippians 2: 9-11

Jesus, Master Carpenter,

My son’s workbench, which always has room for a new project.

Reframe our souls.

Build your home here. 

Clean out the corners filled with our insecurity and close-mindedness. 

Construct new shelves to hold Your love, God.

Renew our minds, frame windows and doors open to Your possibilities.

We want our lives to be evidence of Your creative work in the world.

Do not give up on us God, we pray.


We hope this brings you comfort and joy. You can spread the joy by liking, commenting and sharing this post with others!

Stay-at-home-Jill-of-all-trades I am hoping to create connections with people and the world around me, while being creatively engaged in what is happening right in front of my nose!
