June 10 Prayer
‘Whenever we turn to the Lord the veil is removed.’
Veils are like masks, they hide our faces from each other.
We hide ourselves when we isolate and withdraw from others, and from God.
For God is revealed in our faces,
the face of Christ will be seen when we turn to God.
Now we have been unveiled, as a bride on her wedding night.
Vulnerable, trusting and in love.
We have the very spirit of God in us and where the spirit of the lord is,
there is freedom.
All barriers are removed!
Pause to hold a moment of wonder and awe that God loves you this much.
‘Jesus, you are the revealed face of God.
His glory shines through you unto us.
As we return to you we give you permission to remove our veils.
We let go of our masks that hide us from other.
Shine your light of glory upon our faces so our smiles are seen and
your love displayed through our words and deeds.
We come out of hiding and enter the dance of freedom.
Let your spirit breathe new life upon us and in us once again.
School us in the dance steps of freedom with unveiled faces.
May your glory shine through us in the world of darkness we pray.
So others that are hopeless and blind may see.
You Light the way.
