September 1 Prayer
“And the whole earth will be flooded with the
knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea.”
When Jesus comes
He comes in peace, to make all things restored
and made whole once again.
When the kingdom of God comes there is peace.
No longer will there be harm done, and destruction will cease.
Because of the knowledge of God.
And this knowledge becomes a flood of love
that permeates every single part of you.
Just as the sea is full of water,
and every part of it floods and overflows with water.
Love covers all
so that peace will reign.
Today I come in my weariness, with my questions
and longing to know.
I want to know more of you, God.
I want my heart to be so flooded with your love
that I could know
no contrary way
than the way of your peace.
Peace be in me.
May the love that you give to me,
in my innermost being,
flow out from the fullness of your spirit.
May there be no other way in us
than to find a way to make peace,
here now, on earth with each other.
There is no other way
for this to be the kingdom way.
“Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God.”
Let us be so flooded with your love and the knowledge of your glory
that we truly act like your children,
for that is who we are.
Heal us, forgive us, help us to forgive.
May we become your sea of love and make peace today.
