A Prayer of Illumination for the 20th Sunday after Pentecost – October 27, 2019
Abba, though we may be uncomfortable in admitting this – we need restoration – not just once in a while but each day. Let us then not tarry in reading, hearing and discerning your most Holy Word. Let each syllable meld into our inmost selves, so that your salvific presence may be as salt, and light and leaven. In your love, churn up the unseen and unacknowledged places that remain hidden, and are in dire need of your reclamation. Speak so that we may hear your summons, and hasten to answer your call. We ask this in the wondrous name of Jesus, your beloved Son, and our Redeemer. Amen.
