April 8 Prayer
“He opens their minds to understand.”
He opens their doubting hearts
Frightened by the world’s sway
Deep in sorrow
He comes and reveals himself
Speaking over them his peace
very real presence.
“Touch Me” He says to them,
See that I am divine, real enough to be with you.
He shows his wounds like theirs
to heal their doubts and send them out.
and let him open your mind
to see him really present with you now,
where you are.
Hear him say;
“Peace be with you.”
See his wounded hands and feet.
He has walked the way before you.
Through the resurrection of hope
brings the peace of Christ.
May we all breathe his peace today.
Deep into our souls where we doubt his words and do not understand,
May we be open to seeing him here in a different kind of way.
A real tangible presence.
To touch his wounded hands and understand
his compassionate love will guide us home.
Peace be with you!
Go out with hope and bring his peace to all you meet this day.
