December 28 Prayer
‘Follow another way back home’ Matt. 2:12
Walk in the light, for the light makes everything visible, and Christ will shine His light on you. Eph.5:8-10
For You O’ Lord are the fountain of LIfe, the light by which see.’ Ps.36:9
The wise men that followed the star to the Christ child were warned in a dream to find another way back home.
As we look to a new year ahead and reflect on this past year let us ask God for his light to shine upon us and reveal His way before us.
Holding all of the past struggles and challenges, losses, dreads and dreams, fears and fragilities, we offer them up to a God who knows and holds them for us now.
We ask God to help us follow another way
an unfamiliar way that with every step we will find a little
more wonder and see
a little more to ponder,
with every step to discern what this way will unfold
in the silence and the unease,
when everything is out of balance,
May we listen carefully and closely to the voice
calling us home by another way.
May we receive the promise, the guiding star,
to hold God and let him hold us.
Lead us the only way to find our true home
and be the light so that we might see
the perfect way ~
We receive your joy with thankfulness in our hearts,
all that you have prepared for those who love and follow you.
