May 5 Prayer
a shared life with Jesus.
‘This is how my Father shows who He is…’
‘Come in, stay awhile, hang out with me,
linger and loiter here to make yourselves at home in my love..’
This invitation stands open for all of us.
He shows us that we are not lone branches cut off
but we have the gift of being, the gift of having a home with him.
Christ’s home is in me,
His home is in you, our home is Christ’s home.
So come and stay awhile, and return home
when you feel the chaos and tension inside you.
That is from the world and not the peace that he left you with.
Seek the one thing, ask to dwell in his house
and your heart will be filled and your branches will grow
and you will bear the fruit of peace.
Allow his presence to fill you now as you receive his blessing of peace.
Heal our hearts Lord, so we may see the good in others
and receive the gift of home.
We pray, ‘Give to us hearts of mercy so that we can have eyes of mercy to love beyond measure and to love beyond ourselves.
May we bear the fruit from your vine.
Today be at home with Christ
And let the flowering of peace crown your head.
Christ be with you,
Christ be in you,
Christ be you-
John 15:1-8, Ps.27:4
