A Prayer for Sunday, August 7, 2011

“Nests in its Branches”

Grant, O God, that our local branch of your kingdom will be one in which all sorts of people from all sorts of backgrounds will come and make their home—and will be most welcomed by the birds that are already on the branch.


“He put before them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.’” (Matthew 13:31-32)
