Jesus, give us eyes to see
Your grace made real right now
And help us live expectantly
Expecting to see people come to faith
Growing in faith
Expecting to see people freed from poverty,
Delivered of disease
Making sacrifices for the greater good
Expecting to see prayers answered
Expecting to see wars end
Justice and opportunity abounding
Expecting to see lives unshackled from addiction
Families made whole
Neighborhoods and Nations open
Give us eyes to see
Free from sin, shame, and blame
Only grace upon grace upon grace
And lips quick to testify in thanksgiving and praise
Glory, Glory Hallelujah to our God on high!
Glory, Glory Hallelujah to our God with us!
Based on John 10:1-21
Jesus, the Good Shepherd
You call me by name, so I can know you
You prepare the way, so I can follow
You call others, so we will have companions
You lay down your life, so we may live
Glory to your grace
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 <
