Prayer for Tuesday, May 16


Discipleship in the Midst of the Local Community


God Who Forms, give us eyes to see our community the way that you see it; lead us to opportunities to display your love, grace and compassion. Lord we know that our discipleship is not for us alone, we are blessed in order to be a blessing to others. God grant us, as your image bearers, the wisdom and courage to love the people you love. We believe in your ministry of reconciliation. We believe that if life with you can happen anywhere, it can happen here in our town, on our street, in our coffee shop. You are the God Who Forms and we pray that you will continue to form connections we can see and threads we can follow in order to not only display but also witness your transformation in this place.

So often the spiritual practices we engage are either private or something we pursue in a “safe” context with other Christians. But our faith is meant to be experienced in the midst of the world. What is one spiritual practice you could participate in “out there”?  If you’re interested, ask me about using Lectio with something other than Scripture.
