Prayer Reflection: Proper 13 B

Here’s a prayer poem based on the suggested scripture readings for Proper 13 B (Ordinary 18 B), the tenth Sunday after Pentecost.  It was written by Terri.

Prayer
(based on Psalm 51, John 6:24-35)

Oh my God!
Some days I forget You
pumped up as I am on
Me.

See
how great I
am? lost to me in me -
a glutton, fattened, full,
fed.

Led
astray, I
lost the you in me and
hurt those I love, until -
You.

You
show me. My
flaws are great, change my heart
sorrow deep, repent, me?
Me!


You
God feed me
bread of life the food of
love. You in me, Jesus,
Bread.

Christ
turn my heart
fill my life, pour out love
love that feeds, Body, One
All.

Amen.
