Light a Candle to begin your prayer:
Almighty God open my mind and heart to your word as I read of your gift of Unity Amen
Read Matthew chapter 7 verse 7-12
‘Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
‘Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
Reflection on Bible Reading:
Here we see the golden rule do unto others as you would have them do to you. Also we see that evil actions are fruits of our sin. Sin is the brokenness inside all of us it is the fruits of sin that we see in our actions. We must ask God to heal our broken nature so that we then can be changed from the inside out. We can only change our behavior if we have been healed of our sin.
Pray this prayer aloud:
the earth is full of the glory of your love.
May we your children, born of the Spirit,
so bear witness to your Son Jesus Christ, crucified and risen,
that all the world may believe and have eternal life
through the One who saves,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen
