The Thy Kingdom Come Day 8
Day 8: Thy Kingdom Come
Look...and be curious
Take a moment to see where you are. What do you see? What do you hear? Where is God at this very moment?
Wait... with prayerful expectation
Invite God to come with the simple praye
r: Come Holy Spirit, Thy Kingdom Come
Read...the text with an open mind
When they saw that the star had stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road.
Listen... for a word with a willing heart
Listen for where God is speaking to you in this reading.
Respond... with prayer and action
O God of star and stable, of wealth and poverty, darkness and light, we travel across a divided world to come to you; in time of turmoil may we find hope, do our homage, and find our gifts welcomed, gently extended to the world you love.
(Recall the five people who you have decided to pray for over the next 11 days.)
Give them the peace they need.
Give them the grace they need.
Give them the strength they need.
Give them the healing they need.
Give them the love they need.
Give them Jesus.
