September 25 Prayer
‘For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven….He has put a sense of past and future into their minds.’ Eccl.3:1-11
We all have been called into this world for a season,and a time with a purpose to fulfill.
We each have desires and longings to see the next season unfold, a long awaited promise to be revealed.
At just the right time, wait for it, look for it.
Wisdom teaches that where you are now will surely pass just as that bright star left in the morning sky begins to fade and a new horizon gently appears.
Look for the gift that you are to make, to give of yourself physically in the present and imaginatively in the future.
And be here now, right where you are.
Hold these seasons together inside of you so that you may recognize the new when it rises up to greet you.
Pause to Pray;
Here we are Lord, in our own individual seasons of life, work and relationships in the world.
Take all that we have and all that we are as your gifts to give to the world.
We give you our longings, our desires to see what is ahead and look to what is here now.
Let us see what our time is for and embrace it fully this day.
Show us how to be in this season of our lives and let go of stones that have been
so we may gather the stones that shape our way onward.
We thank you for your unique creation of humanity that expresses the trinity here on earth.
May we seek you more and love you more deeply today.
May you each live fully alive to the glory of God!
