We enter your sacred prayer space, seeking your affirmation. You welcome us and invite us to listen to your amazing plans for us. We cannot fathom what we hear. Your goals for us seem so grand and far-reaching. How can we ever attain your goals? We feel so ill-equipped. But you remind us of your blessings to Abraham and Sarah; how, in your time, you provided everything they needed to fulfil your promises, and their part was to follow your guidance with faith and obedience.
Today, we invite you to ‘Reread, Rest and Reflect’ on the prayers of the past week:
Lectionary Readings for Today:
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.
Let your love be known throughout the heavens, LORD. Let the message of your miracles travel on the wind and be spoken in many lands and languages. Bless these days and all who walk under your eternal canopy of grace, mercy, and love.
Who are we, O Yahweh, that you should look upon us with such favour? You welcome us into your sacred prayer space, and remind us of your unfailing love. Although we have rejected you and chosen to disregard your ways and wisdom, your promises never cease. You call us to prepare for your never-ending blessings.
Praise to you, Jehovah Rapha (The Lord who heals), for you are the Almighty Healer. Thank you, Jesus Redeemer, for healing us so we are not only restored to our physical health, but also our mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We move and have our being while rejoicing, knowing it is only because of your love, mercy, and miraculous healing we are here today. Like the healing of Aeneas, our healing also will bring others to know your healing love for them.
