August 3 Prayer
...if it is really You Lord…
When we are in the middle of battling a storm we ask where the Lord is.
When we are wrestling with our doubts and grief, is the Lord really there?
Is it You Lord that calls me out to come, to have faith once again?
Wherever you are struggling in your prayers see
Jesus reaching out to touch you there.
‘Jesus, I cry out; save me
and you hear my prayer, reach out and touch me.
I touch you as you are touching me.
In my doubts, in my pain and unanswered questions,
In my desperation to be healed,
you do not let me go unnoticed
for you are already there.
Help us to recognize where you are moving,
In healing and where you want to bring reconciliation.
Wash our eyes through our tears when we pray,
breaking our hearts when we pray
for others in their pains and struggles.
May we be able to reach out and touch the ones that have wronged us,
the ones we have judged as unclean,
and unworthy of our attention.
Is it really You Lord that is calling me out upon
the waters of faith to be your hands reaching
out to others that are sinking?
Call us out as one body to be your church
this day to bring the hope, faith and love
to the world around us.
Thank you Lord for the love that
you have put inside of us.
We never stop praying nor crying out for you to listen and
You do answer
through your heart that you
placed in us.’
Matt 14:22-33, Lk.8:42-48,Ps.116
