It is Sunday, a day of corporate worship, singing praises, a good word, bent knees. Community.
In his song, Sunday Morning Coming Down, Johnny Cash sang this line, “Cause there’s something in a Sunday that makes a body feel alone.”
I pray this morning if you are the broken soul standing on a sidewalk with no place to call home, you will seek God, find a church. A community to love you.
The days I spent mired in the pit, pushing away The God who made me, pursued me, never giving up on me, I played this song on repeat. I felt alone, unheard, unseen. I was not, and neither are you, My Friend! He is pursuing you as well!
A Sunday Prayer
May we seek things from above, shedding the things of the world.
May we walk and live and breathe from the hidden place we have in You.
Fully living as God’s chosen ones, holy and dearly loved.
May we put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Bearing with one another, forgiving one another.
May we give grace as we have been graced by You, O Lord.
May we forgive others as You have forgiven us.
Above all, may we put on love, the perfect bond of unity.
Allowing your peace to rule in our hearts, and be thankful.
May your Word richly dwell among us, in all wisdom and teaching. Admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.
May we sing praises to you, O Lord, hearts filled to overflowing with gratitude.
May we not seek to be people-pleasers, but work wholeheartedly for Your Kingdom!
May we not seek our agendas, nor seek to be seen.
Seeking to please you in all things.
In Your Name, the Sweet Name of Jesus, we make our prayer.
