September 22 Prayer
To Proclaim the kingdom of God we are
to take nothing for the journey.
We leave the old ways of thinking behind to make space
for the new to arrive along the way.
New clothing and shoes for when they wear out.
Even a new walking stick we may find to lean on
feels different in the head.
When you find yourself comparing the old to the new
and wrestle with the questions
look for his Holy Spirit to come and guide you.
Look inside of you for what really satisfies your soul.
What time and season are you in on the journey?
Pause to sit with the questions that arise within you….
‘Jesus, you came to show us the ways of God and
You are the way.
May we let go of the old pathways that led us into slavery and
follow your ways of grace and peace.
For you alone satisfy and will give to us all that
we need to make the journey.
We surrender to the reformation of how we think.
Empower us to discern your beautiful will for our lives
where we are in constant communion with You at all times.
We allow and accept this season in our lives,
be it celebration or mourning
for you alone will satisfy our souls.
May hope burst forth into our holy human form
to proclaim the goodness of God.
We will not give up along the way when
for you will guide and provide for what we need.
We take nothing on this journey that will cloud the way.
May we discover the new along the path
as we take this day’s journey and
find where it will lead us.
Together in one hope, one new life,
one household of God for your glory to dwell.
Lk.9:1-6, Rom.12:1-2,12, Ps.3:5
