Emmaus Road Prayer

Here’s a prayer of invocation and petition based on the story of Jesus’ encounter with the disciples on the road to Emmaus (Mark 16:12-13; Luke 24:13-35).  It was written by Rev. Frank Schaefer.

Prayer of Invocation
(Mark 16:12-13; Luke 24:13-35)

Meet us, Lord, on the road to Emmaus,
Guide us on the path toward our destination,
and renew our strength as we continue to walk
and commune with you.
Open our eyes, so we see the signs of your presence around us;
Open our hearts, so we may receive your peace and love;
and empower us to pass on to others
the grace you have shared with us so freely.
