October 21 Prayer
“Grace, Grace, all is grace”
There is a deep, deep well that never runs dry
A vast expanding ocean spread out across the sky
There are forests with tree lined trails that echo boundlessly
and endless ripples vibrating out upon the waters from one cast stone.
All is grace, if we look up and out to see it.
Grace is given freely to us all.
That is the great mystery of the cross of Christ.
We find it, a treasure so full of riches and we hide it to search for it again.
Grace is freely given to receive and we have full access to the mystery of Grace.
Here in us and through us is the diverse wisdom of God’s plan exemplified.
Now we have the mandate to humbly serve grace lived out through our lives.
Pause a moment and try to wrap your mind around this treasure you hold within you.
Better yet let your spirit take these thoughts in and respond to God in a silent prayer.
Breathe in his grace to cover every worry, concern and strife you carry.
Ask, how can I serve the grace in me and give this treasure to others.
Pray this day,
‘May your church exemplify the mystery of Christ's Grace here on earth by our love and service to one another.
Let us serve passionately with grace and strength so that in everything God alone will be glorified through Jesus Christ.
May we give our lives away and be that one cast stone of Grace in our world.’
