We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Things are popping in our Easter season.

Today, in the Acts of the Apostles (4: 32-37) we hear of boldness and newness:

Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common. With great power the apostles gave their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as owned lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold. They laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need. There was a Levite, a native of Cyprus, Joseph, to whom the apostles gave the name Barnabas (which means 'son of encouragement'). He sold a field that belonged to him, then brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

Meeting Jesus in any way, whether we fully understand it or not, changes us – that is how love works.  The challenge before us is: "Are we open to such boldness that puts us at the service of Jesus and the world?"

So, we pray:

Here I am. Lord – body, heart, and soul.

With your love, may I be big enough to reach the whole world,

And small enough to be at one with you.

In Jesus name we pray. Amen

We boldly go where no one has gone before – into our future in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
