Stan’s Corner, Monday, September 19

The prayer of illumination spoke to me this morning:  “Eternal God, we gather as your people to worship you.  By your Spirit break the bonds that hold our minds captive to the petty concerns of our lives that we may know the freedom of new possibilities.  Quiet the din of our distracted spirits that we may hear your gentle voice calling us.  Transform our very lives that we may go forth from this hour with deeper commitment to doing your will, with a firm assurance of your presence.  Amen.”
