July 7 Prayer
Jesus calls us out,
calls our name,
knows our name and everything about us.
He knows where we are from
and where we are going.
He knows what we are made for and thus
sends us out,
to share his mission,
to heal and proclaim the kingdom is near.
Can you hear him call your name?
Where are you looking for the kingdom to come?
May we stop and notice where He is moving to pray;
‘Lord, we are listening,
Whatever gets in the way of our hearing you call our name
would you remove it?
Clear the way of the debris of doubt and shame,
all the excuses and blame.
Let the seeds of your kingdom begin to germinate within us
as the hindrances are removed.
There is a place where you want to meet us today.
May we have the attentiveness to see that place.
May we listen well to your voice everywhere,
in the whisper and in the shout.
The kingdom is near!
May we draw near to God in everything
for this is what we are made for.
