November 10 Prayer
‘Day by day conveys the message, and night unto night imparts the knowledge.’ Ps.19:12
‘For the grace of God appeared bringing salvation to all.’ Titus 2:11-14
‘He will cover you with his feathers, He will shelter you with his wings.’Ps.91
There is a safe place, a shelter, a refuge from fear, from evil, from disease, from hopelessness.
‘Wings and feathers are the metaphor used here in Ps.91.
Angels come bearing a message, we can see it in creation all around during the day and hear it in the middle of the night's stillness.
Where we are restless and wrestle and do battle in our souls.
There is a place to come and hide under safety.
It is not a place where we run away from life but where we run into life.
Our lives are to be trained in the grace freely given. We are made a people of his very own, redeemed and purified to be totally committed to the kingdom works that are beautiful in God’s eyes.
So now come and just be hidden in Christ under His wings of Grace.
Snuggle in and know that you are his own, covered and protected.
Jesus, the divine presence shows us the ways to be human.
He is our exemplar to follow.
We Pray to the Lord;
‘We come and climb under your wings of grace today.
May we receive the courage we need to become more like you in the world.
Show us the beautiful things we are to do and say, to release and obey.
We wait in blessed hope for the manifestation of the glory of our great God and savior Jesus Christ.
We pray and agree with the work of redemption for the whole world.
We lift up those we know and love near to our hearts.
May they receive the message of grace and salvation and know they are yours and belong to you.
Great are your works and great is your faithfulness!
May we all become ‘Like a feather on the breath of God.’ St. Hildegard
