October 21 Prayer
Happy trees are firmly planted
Where their roots can spread out and down
finding a life source to nourish them.
There is always the promise of growth and fruit to bear
in the due season.
There’s the invitation of waiting again.
The grace to be rooted and grounded in the midst of distractions.
So today let us take notice of where we are and what our focus is upon.
Let us be still to feel the earth below us and the sky above us.
Let us become aware that surely God is in this place.
You fill us with wonder and questions and stirrings
when we take the time to look for You.
Cause our roots to go deeper into the well of your presence
right where we are.
May we delight in knowing your word for this season of our lives.
May we wonder what’s to come with holy expectation
that we do not miss your presence in this place.
Move among your people we pray .
Raise up a generation of power, love and grace.
Being filled with faith keeping ourselves in the love of God
Waiting for your mercy, let us build each other up by
being firmly planted, rooted and grounded today.”
Psalm 1:2-3, Jude 20-21
