Sept 7 Prayer
“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love; so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.’ Ps.90:14
O’ People, bless our God. Let our voice of praise resound to the God who gave life to our souls and kept our feet from stumbling. You put a leader over our heads and we went through fire and floods, but then you brought us to a place of plenty. To the lord I cried out and God truly listened. He has heeded the voice of my prayer.
He did not withhold his unfailing love from me.’ Ps.66
Today I awake in the midst of fires and floods, smokey skies and talking seas. All over the world there are people crying out to God in prayer.
Although so many of our churches are unable to meet in buildings we can still become a house of prayer.
God always hears our cries when we are humble and needy.
We remember all the times that God has provided all that we needed.
We wait and we extend our hands outwards toward the compassion of God.
‘ Lord we cry out to you today and know that you will not ignore our prayers.
May your kingdom come to bring life and hope where there is despair.
May we slow down to listen to your calling to us, go here, go there, heal the sick and care for the forgotten.
We thank you that it is in your grace we live and move and breathe.
May we be encouragers today and live in a place of plenty that you provide for us.
We yield to your Spirit’s movement within us this day.
“May your soul and body be turned into a stable, becoming a temple where God will find his delight, dwelling within you by grace.” Catherine of Siena
