January 18 Prayer
There is a table already prepared,
The table of the Lord
Where the bits and pieces of this
are invited to come.
Come and eat the sacred bread of presence.
placed on the table of acacia wood and gold,
ready to be consumed.
Available for us to remember him, partake of him, to make us one.
But there are the confines, and restrictions that can hold us back from eating this bread.
This bread of presence is the communion and the bread of community and unity.
We pause here in front of this table to examine our own thoughts and heart.
To pray ,
Lord every way I think is the only way I lay down here in your presence.
I lay down my will and my willfulness to be turned into willingness;
….to be present to your
presence that mends
all the torn and shattered souls together into one beautiful cloth.
May our mission today be one of
May we be fully present to the bread of life within us to be placed on Your table for all to see.
In our vulnerability exposed
we may be misunderstood, mistaken,
and even ignored,
but we have already been blessed.
Take our single, open hearts
and make them one
in your spirit,
So the world may see and take and eat from the table you have prepared for all.
From the bread of life you have already blessed.
Make us one bread of presence
