June 21 Prayer
‘Go, leave your home, that which has become a familiar place and follow where I lead you…
There I will make your name great and you will become a blessing.’ Gen.12:1-9
Trusting God fully means going into the unknown and sometimes
it is in the uncomfortable places where he leads us.
Sometimes we are required to climb a mountain to get over our stubborn ways of thinking.
Who can go there?
‘The clean of hands and pure of heart, shall climb the mountain
of the Lord and stand in his holy place.’ Ps.24:3-5
What feels and looks like a mountain to you right now?
Sit there a while and allow God’s presence to meet you.
You are with me here at the bottom of the mountain and
I believe that you will lead the way to climb.
We trust you now to renew our minds and make our hearts pure so we may truly see you going ahead of us.
We ask for clear eyes and sure footedness to follow.
When we are falling behind we look for your extended hand pulling us onward.
May we be quick to listen today and not judge our brother or sister along the way.
Keep us close to you Jesus,
The Holy Spirit is our guide map and compass.
Till we reach the top where a new vista opens up before us,
where we reach your holy place of acceptance and peace.
Make us a blessing and hope for our world.
Give us the wisdom, power and authority to pray,
your kingdom come
and renew the face of the earth.
