“How can we keep silent?”

Mount-FujiThe devotional tonight focusses on the theme of “love”. At the close of the evening we’ll be using this Celtic prayer/poem to help us take God’s love to the world.

Perhaps you’d like to pray through it at some point today? How about in your lunch-break, or before going home from work, or walking from the station to your home?

See you tonight ….

God whose love reaches to the highest heavens
how can we keep silent?
God whose righteousness stands like the tallest mountain
how can we keep silent?
God whose justice is deeper than any ocean
how can we keep silent?
God whose grace flows like a never-ending river
how can we keep silent?
How can we not proclaim your majesty
from generation to generation?
How can we not raise the lamp of your Salvation
for all the world to see?
God whose love reaches to the highest heavens
we praise your mighty name!

Your love flows like a stream

StreamThis Friday night I’ll be at Bracknell leisure centre – not for a game of badminton, or an aerobics class, but to lead a devotional on the theme of “love”. Here’s a beautiful prayer/poem I found that we’ll use on the night. Does it miss any of the main attributes of God’s love? Let me know what you think.

Your love

flows like a stream

into the ocean of your Grace.

 

Your love

encircles this world,

displays your faithfulness.

 

Your love

is patient and kind,

brings wholeness and true peace.

 

Your love

is all we desire

to heal our brokenness.

       

As all things pass

and fade away

love remains

eternally
