A Person of Refuge

Posted in prayers from the Bible, prayers i made up tagged , , , at 5:00 am by arthur

Jesus, help me to be a person of refuge-
a safe place for those in danger,
a restful place for the weary,
a place where judgment is suspended,
a person for those in need.

You welcomed me and took me in,
bandaged my wounds,
forgave my sins.
May I be and do the same.

Amen

In Numbers 35, God instructs his people to set aside Cities of Refuge. May we embody this idea in our own lives, living out the Good News and drawing others into this lifestyle of love.

    This is beautiful!
    To offer oneself
    as Jesus does
    — free of judgment.
