Tenth Sunday after Pentecost
THE GOSPEL READING:
Lord, as this new day begins, I imagine Abraham sitting in the shade under his oak tree when you appeared to him in the form of three strangers and he offered them hospitality. Help me to see opportunities to extend hospitality to those in need today, even if it's as small a gesture as offering someone a cup of cold water. Amen.
I return to you, Lord, as this day ends. I am grateful for all that you have given me, all that I have found, and all the doors that were opened to me. As for those prayers that seem as yet unanswered, I leave them with you for now and trun to my rest in the gift of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
