October 4 Prayer
… ‘My word will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.’ Is.55:10-11
When Jesus spoke words he told many stories.
Words create a place and space to enter in and soon
those words become a part of our stories.
A seed to be planted and nourished is a word of truth through the story of the seed and the sower.
A story of mercy and compassion becomes a word to
challenge the mind and reveal the heart through the story of the good neighbor.
Today I ask where I am listening to a word for me?
What am I able to see with the eyes of my heart that would
allow the intention of God’s word to be fulfilled in me?
Could it be right outside my window or right in my home that
there is a word just for me?
See yourself as rich soil, soft and already tilled
accepting the seed being planted and watered there.
Lord here’s my heart and here’s my mind.
Make them the prepared soil for all of your desires to be fulfilled within me today.
Ready to receive and accept a truth that will accomplish a greater good for my neighbor.
Here’s my heart and here’s my mind, here are my hands and when necessary use my mouth to speak.
May I speak nourishing words that creates something beautiful
through the story of my life.
May I know that where you send me is where your word will go forth and not come back empty.
Mark.4:1-8, Lk.10:25-37, Is.55:10-11
