November 10 Prayer
Ten sick shamed men crying out for mercy to be healed.
One sick shamed woman reaching out
to touch the very one
she was not allowed to touch.
Only one healed man comes back to say thanks.
The one healed man was a foreigner and enemy of the one who healed him.
Faith is to act.
Faith is to believe and
faith to reach out and touch.
Faith to break down the barriers between us.
Faith to seek the face of Christ and to be healed.
Faith will free us from our shame.
Pause to realize where you are in your faith and what you are reaching out for?
‘Lord, you call us to come and seek your face with our whole hearts.
We come now asking for mercy for ourselves and mercy for those we are estranged from.
We ask you to heal our hearts from the barriers and untrue thoughts that keep us far from you and your ways.
May we encourage one another’s faith with grateful hearts always seeking your face in the midst of our struggles.
We reach out today to You in faith and ask you to help us to reach out to others held in the prison of their shame.
Everything we have been given has come from your hands.
We give thanks with grateful hearts for all the mercy we have received.
For your love for us just as we are that changes us into your image.
Fill us all this day with your great overwhelming mercy to begin again and have heaven's sight here on earth.
May we have faith that the road of our own healing will lead us to
find Your face in the ones we
May we reach out and become a healing presence too.
Thank you Lord for your great
love and mercy.”
Lk. 17:11-19, Mark.6:24, Ps.27:8-14
