Prayer for the Week:
Our lips, our vocal chords, our lungs – they create song; they give witness to a joy that may not be easily expressed in expository form; they provide a mechanism by which our gratitude reverberates in the hearts of others. We sing to you a new song, O Lord. The melody may not be well known. In fact, it may not be appreciated as beautiful from the perspective of many. Yet even joy that is a little off key and causes the fillings in one’s mouth to hurt, is still recognizable as an unimpeded expression of a person’s encounter with love. It may not be the tune that catches the attention of others, but the wellspring of euphoria that has as its source the deep well of your divine life. Holy God of Creation, you inspire creativity within us. Your immeasurable and inexhaustible love finds us wherever we are. In the lostness of our existence, your love acts with reckless abandonment in its attempt to reveal our value and purpose. May our lives never pause from expressing appreciation for who you are and what you have done. Allow for our thankfulness to manifest itself not only in song, but in service as well. This we pray in the name of Christ. Amen.
