Prayer 669

The prayer series

Jesus,

Mary Magdalene took about a pint of pure nard,
an expensive perfume;
she poured it on your feet
and wiped your feet with her hair.
(John 12:1-11)

Were you not surprised by her actions?
Had she done such to you many times before?
And perhaps she didn’t only wipe your feet,
but also wiped your many other spots with her hair.

You and Mary loved each other deeply.

So when knowing this would be the last time she met you,
she wiped your feet with her hair.

Perhaps she wanted to say,
“I love you.
I love you from your head to your feet.”

Wiping your feet means
“I love you from your head to your feet.”

She didn’t wipe your feet.
She kissed your feet.
She kissed you from your head to your feet.

You and Mary loved each other deeply.

I love you, too, Jesus.

Amen.

PTH
