April 27 Prayer
And they asked him to tell them who He was,
…’Are You the One?’
I woke up to a grand moon light reflecting from the sea,
so close, so near staring at me
as if to say
‘Look at me, I am here even when you're sleeping.’
I watch and wait as the cool moon begins to warm by the mornings colors.
Jesus calls us his own,
‘The Father and I are one’ he says.
We belong here.
As the the moon is held to sky
we cannot be snatched away,
only fade into Dawn’s early light,
until we are completely absorbed,
becoming one, and we belong,
and we are held in His hand.
Today, let’s surrender to this light
that always shines with us and upon us.
Let us hear our name being called
and turn to follow for
we cannot ever outrun his shadow.
Pause to feel his warm light on you as the day unfolds through prayer.
‘Jesus, we receive the blessing of your light
that you reveal to us.
May we know you better today than yesterday.
May we know the smile of your face so we may smile upon others.
Give us the awareness of your nearness that we may watch and wait to see your face here.
Thank you for filling us with your joy so we reflect your loving grace today.
John 10:22-30, Ps.67
