Then I heard a voice in heaven saying; ‘Whom shall I send? and who will go for us?’ Then said I, Here am I; send me; ‘I will go, Lord, if You lead me; I will hold Your people in my heart.’
Deeper in my heart I will hear Your call; I will cry for the desert
until my eyes run with tears because people do not obey Your laws.
If I open my eyes to the world around me, if I open my heart to the people
that surround me, then I feel pain and brokenness.
I see suffering and injustice.
Lord, see what evil the prince of this world is devising,
Let the wind of Your Spirit blow and reverse the works of darkness;
and Your fire will cover the earth.
Deliver us, Lord, from every evil
and grant us peace in our day.
In Your Mercy, Lord,
keep us free from sin,
and protect us from all anxiety
as we wait in joyful hope
for the coming of our Savior,
Let Your Kingdom come, Lord, in me.
I pray the protection of Christ to clothe me,
Christ to enfold me,
to surround me and guard me
this day and every day,
surrounding me and my companions,
enfolding me and every friend.
The above was taken from The Celtic Daily Prayer
Prayers and Readings from the Northumbria Community
Jesus calls us each day to go out into the world as missionaries of His life in ours, touching human hearts in their need with His All encompassing Love for them.
So let us spread the true message of Christ’s gospel; Mercy, Forgiveness, Grace, Compassion, and the greatest of all, Love.
