Prayer 546

The prayer series

Jesus,

Though through you the world was made,
the world do not recognize you.(1)
Are you unhappy?

People expected you were their King
but you were nothing.

You were born in a manger.(2)
You were a carpenter when you grew up.(3)
Then you were a rabbi (which means teacher)(4),
the rabbi who had no place to lay his head.(5)
Nothing.

You touched the dirtiest things.
Tax collectors.
A Samaritan woman.
Your disciples’ feet…

You did all these things
because you knew
where you came from and where you were going.(6)

Amen.

PTH
