“May Your lovingkindnesses also come to me, O LORD, Your salvation according to Your word;” – Psalm 119:41
Good day to you, fellow seekers of truth,
I hope this post finds you well!
I was lead to share the following prayer for the July Prayer for Peace. As I was reading through it the song ‘Kumbaya, My Lord’ was singing in my head. I know there is no coincidence that this song was running through my head as I read the July Prayer for Peace, as ‘kumbaya’ in Gullah means ‘come by here’ (I didn’t know that before today). Below is the prayer that I was given:
Work on us,
Set us on fire and clasp us close,
Be fragrant to us,
draw us to Your Love,
Let us run to You.” – St. Augustine of Hippo
This prayer means so very much to me. This is my interpretation: I’m inviting the Lord into my life to work on me. I want Him to give me passion for Him and protection. I want to be able to notice His sweet loving Presence all day, every day. If there ever are moments that I find tribulation or celebration then I will not even have to think to come to Him first.
I have discovered through my experiences that I can TRUST in God and all He does for me. If there ever is a moment that I cannot find peace by myself then I call on the Lord to help me see “past the trees”.
What does this prayer mean to you?
