Prayer: Warm our hearts

Here’s a prayer of commitment inspired by Luke 24:13-35, where the two disciples encounter Jesus on the road to Emmaus. It was posted on the Christian Aid website.

(inspired by Luke 24:13-35)

'Then their eyes were opened,
and they recognized him.' (Luke 24:31)

Living Jesus, 
whose presence on our daily road 
we often fail to see; 
warm our hearts with fresh confidence in your Word, 
so that, in making room for the stranger beside us, 
we find your hospitality awaiting us, 
and the reassurance of your presence 
to inspire us to tread the road again 
and to share the good news of your resurrection life.
