May 12 Prayer
Who do we worship?
What do we place upon the altar of our lives as we start the day?
We rise with the sun and have breath to breathe from.
We live and move and have our being,
in the very one we worship.
The One who holds everything together,
creation, the sky and the seas and every nation upon the earth.
Everyone belongs to him whether they know him or not.
We pray for those who are searching for something
unknown that they may find God, the true treasure.
We take a look at our own desires to see what
it is that we truly value as a treasure.
Where do we spend all our time in fuital thoughts,
overwhelmed by so many details,
cares and concerns about
how things will turn out that you actually
miss the treasure and pleasure of this very moment?
Of why you are actually here.
Pause and pray;
Jesus, you are the greatest treasure we could ever find.
Nothing will satisfy so draw our hearts inward to find you there.
You are not far from any of us.
‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’
The greatest treasure of all is right here.
In me, In you, in the world.
Show us where You are living and moving today.
Where you have set the boundary lines for us to find you.
Show us every human being in every nation
that you have
created them to worship you.
May we proclaim the treasure we have found
to a world that is groping for something more.
Let us consent to the treasure we have searched for and have found in You.
Let your spirit that dwells in us
move in us today.
In our thoughts, in our emotions and in our strength.
Acts 17:22-28, Matt. 13:44-46
