April 21 Prayer
The Will of God
A sweet fragrance in the air
You sense it from afar
Searching for its source as it pulls you in.
This bread of life.
This Jesus that offers his life so we
will become an attractive perfume.
A scent that calls forth enticing life
that spreads wherever we go.
The only way to have the scent of another
rub off on you is
to come close
to their body.
Come close to Jesus,
Snuggle into him, feel his embrace all around you
and smell his fragrance.
Let it linger in you, like warm bread, take it in and eat it.
Then let his fragrance like fresh field flowers be carried with you,
for it is upon you.
You will know when the fragrance fades,
when the doubt and worry comes stealing life.
Return, get close, linger longer with Jesus.
It’s the only lasting work you will ever do.
Washing his feet with fragrant perfume.
Let him pour his anointing fragrance on you.
Carry it out into the world today.
‘Lord we pray,
You have given everything to us, your will be done
in and through us as we come close
and stay close to you in all we say and do.
May we carry forth the enticing fragrance of life everlasting,
a sweet-smelling bouquet.’
John 6:35-40, 2 Cor. 2;14-15
