The Open Door Prayer

Some people asked me about the prayer that I shared in church today. I want to thank Tim Keel for sharing this we me. I will now pass it on to you

This day is a new day
that has never been before.
This year is a new year,
the opening door.

(Open the door)

Enter, Lord Christ -
we have joy in Your coming.
You have given us life,
and we welcome Your coming.
I turn now to face You,
I lift up my eyes.
Be blessing my face, Lord;
be blessing my eyes.
May all my eye looks on
be blessed and be bright,
my neighbours, my loved ones
be blessed in Your sight.
You have given us life
and we welcome Your coming.
Be with us, Lord,we have joy, we have joy.
This year is a new year,
the opening door.
Be with us, Lord,
we have joy, we have joy.

May we all invite Jesus to be first in our lives and to set the tone for our coming year. Have a blessed 2009.

Love today.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug
