May God bless you this morning as you worship and enjoy some Sabbath rest. Take some time and read Matthew 22:1-14 about the Wedding Banquet God has prepared for us through Jesus Christ. See and hear a gracious God calling YOU to “eat”. Let’s pray together:
Life is busy.
Life is hectic.
Life is stressful.
But you have provided a feast for me to look forward to.
Life is challenging.
Life is demanding.
Life is draining.
But you have provided a party for me to look forward to.
I am sinful.
I am undeserving.
I am unfaithful.
But you invite me anyway.
O gracious God, you have prepared a wedding feast for me and invited me to come. You have made all the preparations and have sent out the invitations through your Son Jesus Christ. My prayer this morning is that my heart may be ready when the summons comes. We don’t know when Jesus will return ~ we just know that you are faithful, gracious, loving and forgiving.
Lord God Almighty, I so look forward to dining with you at Your table. Thank you for giving me hope beyond this busy, hectic, stressful, challenging, demanding and draining life despite my sinful-undeserving-unfaithfulness.
Hear my prayer and accept my confession. I want to eat with you.
Through Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
