For a few days now we’ve been talking about prayer. Perhaps today we should pray – well, at least you can eavesdrop on a prayer, and if it’s relevant to you, you can make it your own.
Let us Praise God:
Invisible and mysterious lord God, our Father, who cannot be discovered by the reasoned logic of men, but who has shown your very self to us openly in the flesh and blood of Jesus, we marvel at the revelation of:
The Almighty who can be vulnerable
The All Knowing who remains innocent
The Ever Present who is unobtrusive
The All Glorious who is selfless
The Sought after who seeks us sinners
The Author of Life who dies for sinners
The Dying One who lives for sinners.
We marvel, we worship and we adore – for in Jesus we see your heart laid bare:
Perfect peace-yet restless for your rebel children.
Perfect bliss-yet pained by our rejection.
Perfect Joy-yet bearing all our sorrows.
Lord we adore you, and worship you, for in love you made us,in Jesus you redeemed us, in The Spirit you indwell us. Wherefore we bless your Holy Name.
Praise the Lord. Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and for evermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,the name of the Lord is to be praised. Psalm 113: 1-3
Now read and pray Isaiah Chapter 12.
