November 11 Prayer
Remember- our past, our wounds, our failings, our arguments and battles and then remember ‘when the kindness and generous love of God our Saviour appeared, He saved us, not because we were right but because of his mercy.’ ‘We are to be considerate and gentle, peaceable, showing true humility to all.’ TItus 3:1-7
Our saviour has come to heal the wounds and bring his presence of peace.
He has brought his mercy and grace to bathe us and bring a renewal within our souls.
For a kindness and generous love to be born in us through the Holy Spirit.
...I hold my wounds before him now and ask for his wounds to speak to me.
Look to the cross as you pray;
As I touch your scars, dear Lord, may my spirit be washed anew with a mercy and peace that will heal my wounds.
I remember all the enmity that is within me, the fractured pieces and allow your peace to come once again and make me whole.
Re- member me. Re-member your Church.
Re-member every part of your body to bring peace and kindness through your grace in your church we pray.
Cause us all on this remembrance day to lay down our weapons and wounds and take up the mantle of your loving kindness and mercy.
Oh but for the grace that goes before us now,
May we be filled overflowing with the love we have received by your mercy so we may carry your peace every place we go.
May his peace enfold you, settle within you,
down to your very toes and rise up to extend through your hands that reach up to the heavens and out to all that are around you.
May you attend to this presence of God’s kindness toward you to be his grace to others this whole day.
Peace be with you!
