August 9 Prayer
Watch and wait
The kingdom of God is like that
Be ready for it
A lit lamp
a fire inside burning so
you do not end up in the dark
distracted by fleeting worries of what will not come.
Keep your lamp filled with oil
from the Holy Spirit.
True faith waits and confident faith receives
when our eyes are fixed on the author and finisher of it all.
‘We are watching and we are waiting.. looking for your love.
Today lift our hearts and spirits to the ways You love.
May we see the open doors of the souls waiting and watching too.
Light the fire again inside of your church to
bring hope in the dark and dying.
For we are your body, the lamp that is ready.
Ignite us with a love that will never burn out.
“Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.
Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company
with him and learn a life of love.
Observe how Christ loved us. His love was
not cautious but extravagant.
He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us.
Love like that.”
Ephesians 5:1-2 MSG
Matt 25:1-13,James 1:6
