Call to Prayer – May 5, 2017
O God, we have heard you compared to a shepherd, provider, healer, and gate. We ask that you guide us now in this time of silence. Invite us to the feast at your table. Restore us. Open the gate and draw us into your presence.
I came that you may have life, and have it abundantly. – John 10:10
At the end of the day, perhaps that is how we know we have an abundant life—when we have shared our life with others. When we have enough of the blessings of God (mercy, peace, love, grace, wisdom, etc.) to share with our others, and then actually do it; that’s when we truly have abundant life.

May we experience the abundance of God’s love and share it graciously with the world.
