April 12 Prayer
Born of the spirit
Born of water
Born of earth
Born of the wind
The things of the natural realm speak of the invisible.
As Jesus speaks the words of life
To be born from above
born anew, and begin again, what comes to your mind?
These things are not tangible to hold in our hands but they are like the wind of the spirit that blows upon us.
Can we trust in the unscene workings of God?
Breathe slowly and deeply letting the grace of the spirit rise up and fall.
Let the wind blow
Afresh upon your now.
Ask your soul where the earth weighs you down,
What keeps you from rising with faith, hope and love?
Be not limited by your mind’s constraints
but let him strengthen you with every gift of the spirit to bear the light of the risen Christ to the world.
Pause and pray;
Lord, loosen our feet from the weights that keep us down, our hands from grasping air,
and let us see in the natural the supernatural workings of your spirit.
May we attend to these workings in our bodies where we are limited and see your spirit there.
May we attend to creation around us and see the spirit there.
May we have faith to believe you are working in people and situations we see as being Impossible.
Let your spirit stir there within us to be born from above, born anew, born of your wind
Let faith arise and joy come like a newborn babe.
Fall afresh today!
