Sabbath Prayer: Week 2

 
“Lord, teach us to pray…”
(Luke 11:1)
 
As we mentioned last week, each summer we take a Sabbath break from the Word From Below reflections. Instead, we are inviting you to pray with us. (We will resume our normal Word From Below reflections in September).
 
Here are two prayers that have been helping form us in our call to develop incarnational leaders: The Prayer of Vocation grounds us in our particular call, and the Prayer of Discernment helps us discern the move of the Spirit at work in us and our network.
 
We invite you to pray one or both of these with us.
 
Prayer Request (Each week we offer a new prayer)
This week we are praying for the Urban Training Collaborative. We currently have 9 hubs, which are training more than 1,500 leaders. In addition, we have several new cities interested in becoming hubs.
 
Praying
It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
 
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
 
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”
 
– Mary Oliver, Thirst
