Prayer based on Luke 5:36. Themes: Newness, Incompatibility.
Dear Lord, thank you for the parables you have shared with us. Help us to understand the wisdom behind your teachings. Just as no one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one, may we also not try to patch up our old ways with new ones. Instead, may we embrace the newness of life that you offer us and allow it to transform us completely. May we not tear apart the new with our old habits and ways of thinking. Help us to match our lives with your will and purpose for us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Verse: He also told a parable to them.“No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old garment, or else he will tear the new, and also the piece from the new will not match the old.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader not to put a piece from a new garment on an old garment, or else the new garment will tear and the piece from the new will not match the old.
