We enter your sacred prayer space seeking shelter from the harsh rulers and ways of the world. We are covered with the dirt and filth of a world gone mad as so many stray from your presence. They threaten to consume us. You remind us that your ways are more pure and powerful, and that we will remain protected as the furnaces burn and the seas boil around us.
I feel your healing touch today, Great Physician, and thank you for…
As we feel your healing and see more clearly the path you have set before us, may we never take for granted your mercies and blessings. We praise you for your wisdom and almighty gentleness and power.
Thank you, Divine Family, for giving us what we need. In your wisdom you gave us Jesus, your son, to be our high priest who offers gifts, prayers, and sacrifices on our behalf. Thank you, Jesus, for experiencing humanity and having compassion for us. Thank you, Jesus, for showing us how to express our love and devotion to the Divine Family. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for taking our prayers and intertwining them with your prayers so we can receive all the gifts and blessings you have in store for us.
Today, we invite you to ‘Reread, Rest and Reflect’ on the prayers of the past week.
Lectionary Readings for Today:
Loving Divine Family,
We enter your prayer space with heaviness on our shoulders. We feel the weight of sorrow and grief from threats of war, death of loved ones, stolen dreams, and lost visions. Your words and response are compassionate to us: “Come, let’s have something to eat. Rest in my peace and light, and tell me about your day.”
The ground quakes and mountains move, the sky thunders and the wind blows at the sight of your mighty hand. Waters roar and foam. All are moved to music at your direction. All sing praises to you, for your reign is eternal and glorious, and you are loving and gentle to those who acknowledge your ways. May we forever look to you, our king and creator.
