October 6 Prayer
“ ...you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need for only one thing.”
“Our soul is waiting for the Lord,
our God, our help and our shield.
In you do our hearts find joy;
we trust in your holy name.
May your faithful love be upon us,
as we hope in you, O Lord.”
What is the one thing that I need right now?
What are the things that are distracting me for doing it?
Jesus is here now in front of you and all around you.
Even within you, so pause and breathe in his presence of being with you.
“May everything that distracts me fall away and let my heart delight in your gaze for this very moment.
Open my ears to listen deeply to the one thing you want me to hear.
I offer up my hands to you this day.
May they bless what you bless and care for the things that you are caring for.
I offer up my word to you today.
May they speak of what you speak of and call out the things that are needed for this moment.
I offer up to you my eyes, may they look for you everywhere and see beyond the appearance of things seen.
May my heart take in the one thing you have appointed for this very moment in time.
Let us all find your joy here with us and around us today.
May the faithful love of God, the peace of Christ, and the life of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
