Prayer for the Day
God of each of us and God of all of us, we seek you in the wilderness of our lives – as individuals and as a community. Forgive us when we chose to identify our spiritual dwelling place as a location rather than a manner of Jesus-inspired living. Lead us, Holy Spirit into spiritual postures which encourage us to “tabernacle with God.”
For a moment, picture your faith community in your mind’s eye. Now imagine your community journeying together with God outside of your fixed house of worship. What figurative baggage would your community leave behind by tent camping with God for a bit? In what ways might God re-form your family of faith if you acknowledge the wilderness you are in and focus more keenly on the Holy Spirit’s guidance?
