My prayer for the week….

I really liked the songs we sang in Church today. They were one’s that resonated deep within me and were familiar. I have enjoyed the lingering words and tunes that have been repeated in my thoughts for most of today.

I especially have been thinking of the words of “Make me a Channel of Your Peace.” I want to take the words with me into this week and be curious about how God is going to call me to action in the words I sang and asked God to make real in my life this week.

I wonder how these words speak to your heart this week. Will you be one who reaches out to others or perhaps one who receives the peace offered. It is my prayer that this week will be one where we feel God’s embrace and love through the community of people He has surrounded us with.

I am happy to share this song with you if you follow the link below, sung by Susan Boyle. (To start the song, fast forward to 35)

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me bring your
love.
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord
And where there’s doubt, true faith in
you.

Chorus:
Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring
hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

Chorus:

Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
In giving to all men that we receive
And in dying that we’re born to eternal
life.
