July 15 Prayer
This is my name…
What is in a name?
We so desperately want to name what we own
so it becomes our possession.
God says my name is “I am”
Not someone you can own or make to your own likeness
Not something you can reshape or redesign.
“I am who I am”
Pause in the wonder of God who is being
essence of all being
Who calls you to come unto him
the heart of Jesus
meek and humble
Let him hold your head high
Let his being become your glory
and find rest in his heart.
Let his glory surround and cover you,
and become your shield of protection
until your inheritance becomes his name,
the ground of your own being.
We come to you with all of us to grab a hold of all of you.
All that we do not know we let you take the lead in.
May we learn from you the steps of your dance of a greater grace.
May our footsteps find their home surrounded in your presence
as we stay close to your heart , the center of it all.
To dance upon injustice, lies and all that takes us away from you.
We hold on to the ribbon of grace
that will never let us go.
Teach us your dance today so that love abounds and
holds us in the center of your being.
You are who you are and
you will never change your love for us.
Thanks be to the great I am!
