A Prayer for Thursday, April 11, 2013

Twelfth Day of Easter

What does it mean, O God, for Christ to live in us? What does it mean for the crucified and resurrected Lord to live in us?

It seems like it should make quite a difference—probably much more of a difference that it is actually making. Or maybe we are not aware enough of the difference that it is making; maybe things are happening to which we are not sensitive and which we choose, for whatever reasons, to ignore.

But God, whether the difference is not being made or whether we are ignoring it—what a shame! What a missed opportunity! What a refused blessing!

So whatever it means for Christ to live in us, O God, please cause us to experience it, to be aware of it, and to live it.
