October 10-11 Prayer
“Know that the Lord is God,
Who made us, to whom we belong.
We are God’s people,
The sheep of his pasture.” Ps.100
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”
It starts with belonging,and responding to the invitation to come.
Come to the large vast spread of a banquet laid out for all to partake of.
Come and dine at this table of abundance. The table is God’s, his kingdom of love. And everything we need or could ever want is there for the taking.
Through Isaiah he speaks, “The Lord prepares for all peoples a banquet of rich foods, he will remove the mourning veil covering all peoples, and the shroud enwrapping all nations, he will destroy death forever.
The Lord will wipe away the tears from every cheek; he will take away his people’s shame everywhere on earth..”
Imagine this banquet table laid out for all as we pray,
God, of merciful love and grace , we are so full of gratitude for all you have prepared for us to receive. Let us know deep inside how much you love us tenderly and desire to care for us.
Let us know that we belong to you so we may extend this merciful abundant love to others. May we see your invitation offered to all.
Let us live in a contentment that embraces everything that is before us in this broken world. We hold all things in grace, whether hard times or good times for you have given us all things.
May we learn this secret if kvining in every situation fully present to your grace within.
We pray for those who are in want and need today.
May they know your provision and may we know how to help them when called upon.
We offer up every hard situation to you today and ask for your touch.
We confess our wants and needs that keep us from desiring you.
Remove the shame of your people so we may be a people that loves abundantly and hopes fully in a good God all the time.
We thank you for your tender love and power to bring life out of death, and beauty out of ashes.
Come and dine at the King’s table of abundance.
The Lord is there
