Prayer of Presence

Posted in Contemporary Prayers at 2:41 pm by davebayne

God of Israel, God of Jesus, your name is Shekinah, Presence.
We feel your saving presence in our bodies, our emotions, our hopes.

You appear in deserts and oases, in crisis and at quiet meals.
Your epiphanies calm our fears and heal our shame.

Help us to recognize you in all your faces –
in the flesh as well as in the spirit, in Eros as well as in Logos.

Help us remember that Jesus is God’s desire in the flesh,
God’s body language.

Make us alive to our world, and through it, alert us to your presence.
