It's been too long since I posted here, and I promise I will start again as soon as we get home. It was a very busy summer and now the fall is turning out to be as busy as the summer. It keeps me out of trouble. Here is a prayer God put on my heart at 3am the other morning. It was for a friend.
Great creator, Holy Spirit, I AM, Jehovah, Healer, God. You are known by so many names yet you are one. We are many yet we are one. We come together in the name of Jesus Christ looking to you in admiration of your mighty power. Humbled by your great love and patience for our many transgressions and brokenness. We thank you for the blessings in our lives. Those we can see and those we can't see. Forgive us our sins. Knowing that we are all related, we thank you for the blessing of family. Our lives are like threads being woven together to create a tapestry of this thing we call family. Because we are all different yet one, the threads you weave are strong and tightly knit. Making for a beautiful tableau of colors and designs. There are times though that we misunderstand each other. We fail to communicate effectively, we listen to the deceiver, and because of that we are hurt and can have feelings of betrayal that dull the colors and designs. At times that pain can tear entire pieces away. Creating ugly holes in the beautiful tapestry you have created. It is during these times we need your healing hands to soften the hearts of those who have torn themselves away. We pray that you bring these torn pieces back to our family. Re-weave those torn threads and repair the ugly holes made by our own brokenness. Make our tapestry, our family whole again. Create beauty out of ugliness, forgiveness out of spite and love out of hatred. We ask that you continue to weave new threads into this beautiful tapestry making it bigger as we bring more people into our family. These things we ask in the name of the great healer; Jesus Christ. Amen.
