August 24 Prayer
Jesus already knows our inner motives and
the intentions of our hearts.
Everything that is hidden He will bring to light.
Nathaniel prejudged Jesus according to his family and town of origin
yet Jesus saw him without any deceit.
He saw him finding him.
Let God look at you now where you are.
Here we are
In our everything.
In our conflicted thoughts and doubts,
And here You are Lord
Looking at us
Loving us into who you see
truthful and true people
waiting to be found.
Here we are
Let the fire of your light
all false judgments and the shame we carry because of them.
Let the heat of your love reveal our true motives to
follow you into the light.
To bring hope and peace to the world around us.
To be an example of your heaven on earth.
Open us up to see your
and find your gaze upon us.
Let us see you
and finding us.
To be known is the beauty of belonging and
coming home to our true love.
May we see him seeing us today in
every encounter we have,
to be our true selves, washed clean and made anew
because of his life and peace living in us.
‘For I have found him, my heart's true love.’
