October 28 Prayer
‘We are no longer strangers or wandering exiles for now we have a true home.’
We are no longer on the outside looking in,
now we belong and we are growing together carefully,
a joining together into a household,
a home, a spiritual dwelling place
This is a process so as we pray today try to see yourself
not just as an individual with your own needs
but a part of a larger family.
A part of something much bigger and wider than you.
You are being built into a home with others for God to be present in.
Take a moment to ask God what He desires as a household.
“I confess that my own needs and comfort takes preeminence over
what You call a real home.
Today I ask for a higher view to see how you are building up
not just me but us into someplace
You are able to live.
Show us how to carefully connect with others as you join us together.
May we be able to see another’s way as being a part of the way to belong.
May we draw near to You Jesus as our center point,
the very core of the household we are becoming.
Keep us close to the foundation,
to our heritage of those that have gone before us,
and may we learn from their glories and their failings.
Weave us with the sticks of our own humanity made holy
into a glorious resting place for
Peace to dwell.
May we be careful in our growing
and intentional in becoming a household for God.
