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 Third Sunday after Epiphany

Isaiah 9:1-4
Psalm 27:1, 4-9 (1)
1 Corinthians 1:10-18
Matthew 4:12-23

If you walked past my cubicle at work today
saying, "Follow me, and I will make you a helper of humans,"
would I immediately follow?
What kind of person must you have been, while on earth,
to inspire such decisive action?

Despite our caution, call us every day
to follow again in your way of love,
of justice, of service.
Remind us that our stuff is only stuff
while the journey makes us who we are
and draws us close to you.

Call us today, Lord.
