July 14 Prayer
God hears the cries of the oppressed
He calls us by name
in the noticings
In the most peculiar ways
as we are
in our day to day doings
in our callings,
in what captures our attention.
Here is becoming holy ground...
Here we pray;
Open unto me the way unknown to me
that I may walk upon your path of light and grace.
Open unto me a way of noticing the great I am
is with me
Divne made flesh this Jesus,
spirit in me.
Open unto me the lost and wounded child sitting on the street corner
that I may notice you there,
that i may speak the word
‘I am with you’
to set the captives free
The I am is here!
Make this ground holy,
this space sacred
May I do the same when I hear you call my name
out of the most peculiar places
unto the lost forgotten faces
Push me further Lord,
to go forward
remembering you have done great things
in every generation,
and you are here and will do great things again.
I declare You are with me.
May I expect to see you appear in the faces I see today.
Do great things through your people.
