August 19 Prayer
“Eternal and Immortal One, You have been our home and shelter.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from everlasting , you are God.” Ps.90
‘I myself will search and seek out my sheep. I will find my sheep and rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on that dark and cloudy day. I will bring them back home.’Ez.34
As we enter prayer now, be still and know that God is your true home.
Imagine this safe place and shelter he has provided for you.
‘O God, who have prepared for those who love you, good things which no eye can see,
Fill our hearts,
We pray, with the warmth of your love,
So that, loving you in all things and above all things
we may receive your promises, which
surpass every human desire.
Set our eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ
Who is our good Shepherd that sees our needs and cafes for us.
May we be conformed to your image on earth, to bring your kingdom here.
Show us the oppressed and neglected ones that you are seeking out.
May we reflect your light and care for those that have been forgotten and overlooked.
Let your Word be known to the nations, your Glory to our children’s children.
Let your grace and gentleness of the Holy Spirit be upon us
to bring those that are scattered to your home.
For you are our God, the everlasting One, the beginning and the end.
We find our true home in you.
Let us dwell in your heart this day, as our loving, companion presence, forever.
