Call to Prayer
Trusted Guide, You are my Mentor, my Inspiration, My Home of good choices and decisions. You help me to search with confidence as I find my way to inner peace. “Prayer to Sophia” by Joyce Rupp
Scripture (Luke 24:31-33)
And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scripture?” And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem.
How have your eyes been opened to recognize Jesus in your midst?…in a family member?…a co-worker?…a friend?
