September 28 Prayer
“An argument started amount the disciples, ….Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.” Welcome this child , welcome me …. Whoever is not against you is for you“.Luke 9:46-50
How could the followers of Jesus be in the middle of a dispute? Is this hard to imagine in our day and age?
Thinking we are better than another, trying to be the first one heard.
Why does Jesus place a child before his followers?
If we could only be as a little child once again and rest in the arms of our lovingGod. To know where we have come from and trust that we have all that we need.
Whatever and whoever is blocking your way from the peace of Christ, begin to release to the One that welcomes you as you welcome Him. He already knows your most intimate thoughts.
“It is You O Lord, who are my Hope, my trust and my secure shelter. It was you who supported me from the day I was born, loving me, helping me through my life’s journey. You’ve made me into a miracle; no wonder I trust you and praise you forever! Many marvel at my success, but I know it is all because of you, my mighty protector! For you are my only hope, Lord! I’ve hung on to you, trusting in you all my life.”
Everything we have is from God and everything we are we give back to Him.
May we find our refuge in knowing this and trusting our life to a loving God.
Let us see others not as our enemies but our allies working together for the greater good and glory of God.
Lord we ask that you would free us from the chains of judgment, injustice and prejudice.
Keep us safe,
Give us grace to persevere in love through Jesus our peace.
Renew in us a childlike heart to see the best and seek the best in ourselves and others.
We welcome you in our whole beings in our imaginations and intuitions so we may trust and follow you this day.
Lead us from death into life, from falsehood to truth, hate to love.
Nothing will ever atop us from loving and praising you!
Our hope is in You.
