We offer you this Prayer “Taking My Life”
Look, I’m at the door knocking. If you hear my call and open the door, I’ll go into his house and will have dinner with him and him with me. Ap 3.20
I’m at the door and I’m calling.
Taking my life for you to turn it into bread.
Taking my life so I can give it to you.
Taking my life to repeat that gesture of yours
and putting myself at the feet of humanity.
Taking my life to give you back what you sowed in me.
Splitting me so I don’t get locked up and isolated.
Splitting me emptying myself so I can be.
Splitting me celebrating in your memory.
Splitting me so my will won’t be done.
I’m leaving to deploy in your abundance.
Dividing me in new ways that I’ve never seen.
Dividing me into the others and finding myself more and more lightened.
Dividing me without holding or speculating.
Dividing me up to that land where milk and honey spring.
Walking to Jerusalem and near the other bank.
