Tuesday Prayer

Another Tuesday prayer from Erik. Again, if you are interested in using these prayers, please email him.

Tuesday Prayer based on texts for the Name of Jesus

Numbers 6:22-27
Psalm 8 (1)
Galatians 4:4-7 or Philippians 2:5-11
Luke 2:15-21

You're blessed and brought into the covenant today, Lord;
circumcised according to the tradition
your name, "God is salvation," suggested by an angel.
all this as you wail in pain
just a baby, but so much potential too.

You have brought us, too, into covenants and promises.
Life of the world, hold us in your saving grip.
When we wail in pain, comfort us as you were comforted
but also help us grow in grace and love
that your intent for us and for the world
may come into being.
