November 9 Prayer
In the holy temple
out all that is not holy.
Jesus, the very foundation we are built upon
Holy we are made
A place of prayer
A place of peace
A bearer of his face in the world
Everything must be built upon Jesus
How we think and how we act
For we are the place
Forgive us for all that we have allowed into our temples that is unholy.
All the things that have kept us from your peace. Fear, control, pride, envy, hopelessness …..
Thank you that in your mercy you correct us, humble us and make us whole.
Help us to see that we are each a holy place where you live.
Help us to live as you live in the world .
Where justice and mercy meet.
Where peace is within the walls.
Wash us today and make us clean.
Let us see with bright new eyes the future you will bring.
Let us be a bright,washed clean holy temple to shine in the world today.
By your grace we pray,
John 2:13-16, Eph.2:19-20, Ps.122
