Prayer based on Luke 14:21. Themes: Anger, Hospitality, Compassion
Dear Lord, we come before you today with humble hearts, seeking your guidance and wisdom. We ask that you help us to be faithful servants, always ready to do your will. Just as the servant in the parable came to his master with news, we come to you with our prayers and petitions.
Lord, we know that you are a God of compassion and mercy, and we ask that you help us to show that same compassion to those around us. We pray that you would give us eyes to see the poor, the maimed, the blind, and the lame in our communities, and that you would give us the courage to reach out to them and bring them into your kingdom.
We know that you are angry with those who reject your invitation, but we also know that you are a God of second chances. So we pray that you would help us to be your hands and feet in the world, bringing your love and grace to those who need it most.
Lord, we thank you for your goodness and your mercy, and we pray that you would continue to bless us and guide us as we seek to serve you. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
Verse: “That servant came, and told his lord these things. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘ Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, maimed, blind, and lame.’
This is a Command: “Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, maimed, blind, and lame.”
