A Prayer in response to the Parable of the Great Feast
Thank you for your kind invitation,
It was unexpected.
I would like to be there but I need some help.
Sometimes I don’t like socialising,
I worry about how this invitation will fit into my life,
I feel too tired.
I wonder who else will be there ?
I’m very busy at the moment.
What if the other guests are different to me and we don’t have anything in common?
Who else have you invited?
What if no-one likes me?
What if I don’t like them?
How long should I come for?
Could I just stay for a little while?
Lord help me to overcome these fears,
help me to be in a position to accept your invitation.
Help me to know your presence where I can be myself
and all other worries can melt away.
Help me to remember that you are always with me
and you know more about me than I know about myself.
Help me to be reassured that I can come as I am
And you want me for what I am-not what I bring.
Thank you that this invitation is for everyone,
regardless of our differences.
Thank you for all the doors this invitation will open
for me-the joy, the limitless potential.
I’m really excited now!
I’ll be there
PS Can I bring a +1
