when was the last time we stood on tiptoes,
stretching to see over the horizon,
stretching to see tomorrow,
stretching to see the possibilities You offer?
Too many times we are complacent,
viewing life from the sidelines,
living in fear of scarcity
instead of rejoicing in your abundance.
get us on our tiptoes again;
put us on frontiers of your revelation!
As seekers, help us affirm our faith.
As witnesses, help us to share our faith in Jesus.
As disciples, help us to follow Jesus faithfully.
As servants, help us to serve.
We pray in the mighty and redeeming name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
A prayer offered at our Southern Cluster “Ministry and Mission” meal
by our Stated Clerk Becky Willis.
May we all stretch toward acts of increasing generosity
and holy trust!
