August 19 Prayer
There is an invitation
a call for us all to come
Come to the banquet
Come to the wedding
Come to the celebration
What Is This celebration we are invited to?
The kingdom of God;
Righteousness,peace and joy
Having our hearts made right,
our spirits freed from entrapment
Empowered to live a life of purpose
An initiation to pray here on earth for
Justice and reconciliation
For all to receive and accept the invitation of goodness
Start with me
May I accept your invitation today
To follow your ways into kindness when
People are rude and abrupt
May I respond in peace.
May I overlook their wrongs and allow you to make things right.
I do not need to impose my ways on others but
make room for your presence there.
Today I choose to accept your invitation to joy
No matter how grim the day may look
I know there is a feast and celebration with you.
O God, in You is my delight and my salvation.
In You, I find my joy.
May I extend my hands to invite others to find you there.
‘Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast.’
