To Reach for Your Hand, O God…

(a prayer)

Dear Jesus, we desire to meet, this day, with you.  And yet, our minds keep flitting to so many things, the projects we want to accomplish, the people we want to talk to, the people we wish we didn’t have to talk to.  We are distracted, O Lord.  I wonder if these things are distractions to spiritual concentration or invitations to see you in the ordinary things of life.  I wonder.

Dear Jesus, we know that you are the Center who knows no distraction.  We offer up our mental fragmentation to you, O Lord our God.  May our scattered-ness become your gathered-ness.  As we contemplate a thousand things, Jesus, may we somehow contemplate You.

Dear Lord, we want to place our hand in your hand and walk and talk and listen.  We long to sit at your feet and learn of You from You. We place ourselves under your bidding this hour.  May we sense your presence in the structure of this hour.  May what we do lift up Jesus here, at this time, and in the world where we will go after this hour.

To reach out to your hand, O God, is our desire. To realize that you are always reaching for our hand is to know your grace in our lives. Thank you for that realization, in heart, mind and soul.

We love you Lord.  We want to worship You in spirit and in truth today.

In the name of Jesus Christ and through the power of Your Holy Spirit, we pray, with thanksgiving.  Amen.
