Prayer For Monday Of Holy Week

(from www.lifeandwork.org)

 

Jesus,
on that Monday you went into the temple,
you walked into your house and looked around.
On this Monday, draw us to you
that we may walk with you through our places and patterns of worship.
 
Jesus,
on that Monday you set foot in the Holy Place
and your jaw dropped.
God’s presence obscured by mammon’s throne,
God’s voice drowned out by the rattle of coins.
Profit being made from prayer.
 
Jesus,
on this Monday show us what you see in the places where we worship,
show us what you see in our hearts.
If we have obscured your presence – show us,
if we have drowned out your voice - show us.
 
Jesus,
on that Monday your hands gripped the edges of tables
with the strength of your arms you toppled them over -
coins spinning to the ground,
doves flying free.
 
Jesus,
on this Monday show us what needs to change.
Breathe the Holy Spirit upon us,
that as we worship,
Your ‘house will be called
a house of prayer for all nations.’

Amen

The Rev Dan Carmichael.
