August 10 Prayer
It is the spirit of love that gives life. It is in this spirit that Jesus tells us we must die like a grain of wheat falling into the earth before we can have a life of fullness.
The outer shell of a grain breaks away to bring forth the real seed within that will bring forth a new life from the earth. Let us fall into God who is the very ground of our being and allow his word of love be birthed in us anew.
I ask, What condition is the soil of my soul today?
In the rain of prayer I find presence and the fullness of life begins to grow.
Breathe in his life to pray,
‘Show me Lord and teach me the path of life where your face is shining upon mine.
Where my feet know where to go and how to serve you this day.
Reveal to me in your brightness my own darkness that must break away.
I see my own preoccupations are not always in serving your heart. You have shown me the right way, the way to walk humbly, and to act justly and to love mercy.
I confess that this is not in the forefront of my mind.
Forgive me Lord, for my own need for protection and projection of what I think is right. May that part of me, the outer shell break away so your light and path of life may break forth.
Let me see the poor and vulnerable before me that I usually ignore. Turn my heart to action with the same kindness and compassion that you have shown me.
Thanks be to God for your mercy is new this morning.
“You have shown me the way of life, the right path, and you will fill me with the joy of your presence. Ps. 16:11 , Micah 6:8
Together with one voice your people cry out for your mercy, justice and humility.
Lead us on O’Spirit of Love!
