A Prayer of Invitation
Based on Luke 14:15-24, The Parable of the Great Dinner
and Isaiah 55:1-2
Then the master said to the slave, “Go out into the roads and lanes, and compel people to come in, so that my house may be filled.” – Luke 14:23
In the midst of all you are facing
Come to the One who overflows
To Living Water
Thirst no more
Come to Jesus
The One who is Wine
The Vine Eternal
Who was cut off, crushed, and poured out
For your forgiveness and deliverance
May you be rooted in Him
And gladdened in His presence
For His joy is our strength
Rest against our Beloved’s breast
Nurtured and nourished
On the milk of love and kindness
The bill is paid
Eat and be satisfied
With the very Bread of Heaven
Grace is calling
Come, the feast awaits
For the next few months, I’m reading a chapter from the Gospels each day. This is part of the Summer in the Scriptures reading plan sponsored by the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. Click Here for the reading plan.
You’re most welcome to read along and to join the Facebook discussion group, Summer in the Scriptures. You don’t need to be a Methodist or attend a Methodist church. All are welcome and all means all.
As part of the Facebook group, I’ve been supplying prayers based on the day’s reading. Feel free to post your prayers and observations based on the readings here or there as well.
May the grace of the Gospels, the challenge, and the call, inspire us to great faith and great good works in Jesus’ name. – Lisa <
