Lord, show me the way today.
Show me an aspect of your
greatness that I tend to overlook.
Show me what makes you smile and
what makes you sad.
Show me people whom I need to
Forgive and from whom I
should seek forgiveness.
I especially need you to show me . . . you.
Thank you for showing yourself to me in your son,
Jesus Christ. Amen.
—Ray C. Jordan, “Morning Prayer,” in The Africana Worship Book (Year C), edited by Valerie Bridgeman Davis and Safiyah Fosua (Discipleship Resources, 2008)
What will you ask God to show you today?
Join the conversation.
Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart to revere your name.
—Psalm 86:11 (NRSV)
Prayer for the Week
Abba, Help us to see beyond ourselves,
and see you in ALL of the world.
It is because of your goodness and
in response to your grace
that I pray . . . Amen.
