Midweek Message, June 21, 2017


I wanted to share this prayer with you that I heard at our Florida Annual Conference meeting a couple of weeks ago. It touched my heart with its truth.

It was written by Thomas Langford, who was the Dean of Duke Divinity School, later Provost of the University, and a United Methodist clergyman from the Western North Carolina Conference.

“O God,
Your intention to give exceeds our readiness to receive.
Your boundless love is restricted by our small vessels.
Your generosity far exceeds our responding reception.
Your richness is restrained by our poverty of expectation.
Your expansiveness is channeled through our small hearts.
Enlarge our capacity.
Increase our receptivity.
Open us to your full life.
Make us more able to receive your generous grace.



Have a grace-filled week,
