Wednesday morning prayer
Lord, you are always weaving the things of heaven with the things of earth. You dwell among us, above us, and within us. Make us expectant of angels tarrying to do your work. Form us into eager messengers, ready to speak peace in broken communities.
We thank You, Lord, for the gift of living in this nation and for blessings You shower on all its citizens. Guide us as we fulfill the duties of citizenship. Let us carry out our civic obligations with gratitude toward You and joy at the privilege of serving others through participation in community and national life. Let us see all kinds of public service - payment of taxes, efforts for local and national improvement, support for responsible political parties and noble causes - as opportunities to give You praise and to meet the needs of others. Grant us wisdom to repent of unwise decisions in the political sphere and discernment to make proper contributions to the common welfare.
May Wednesday be a dwelling day, curled up on Abba's knee. Following in the path of Christ, with His Spirit I'm set free. Let Wednesday always prompt my heart to travel home to nest. To feel the blessings of my faith to know Your peace and rest. In Jesus' name, who redeemed us by His cross.
