November 9 Prayer
‘Everything will flourish where the river flows’ Ex.47:9
‘Those who live in God’s dwelling will find rest under the wings of love and declare ‘ You are my safe place, my strength. In you alone will I trust.’ Ps.91
Today I come to the source of the river that flows in and through me for God is that sure place.
Where the river flows everything grows and brings refreshment to those who are nearby.
Can we cling closely to the source of all life and trust with our whole hearts that this river of God’s Grace is enough to nurture and sustain us for the days ahead?
Imagine now this river flowing and that you are planted right along the edge where your roots may continually take a drink from.
Your leaves are always green and your branches are full of fruit for all that pass by.
You do not worry or try to control the river; you simply rest there and let the water do it’s work for you and through you.
This is the place of prayer, of letting go and trust.
‘So today Lord, we rest and we trust that you are the source of all life and your love will guide us back home to you.
Let our trust in you be the pathway to where you are dwelling in us.
May we have a renewed vision for the world and our place in it for the days to come.
Pour out your living waters of grace upon us so we may allow your river to run through us and out into the world around us.
We rest, we trust, we delight in your presence this day.
