This week my hub church, New Harvest Ministry, finished a long journey through the Hebrew prophets. Next week we begin a prayerful conversation on the apostle Paul’s epistle/letter to the Jesus-community in Ephesus, Ephesians. Prayers are forming as I meditate on the text:
Blessed and Holy Father of Jesus
Heaven and Earth meet in your Son. Brought together in peace are they. In Christ we walk in heavenly places holy and blameless before You, our neighbours, and our enemies. We live and play in a world before and after this present world. May we not continue as slaves to this world. But let us walk in our forgiveness that You have lavished upon us. We thank you that the mystery of Your will has been made known, the bringing together of all things in peace. A new world without end. Amen.
