If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. – John 13: 14
Dear Heavenly Father, full of Mercy and Compassion, what a beautiful example the Lord Jesus Christ gave us of how we should conduct our lives, in pure humility of purpose. May we decrease in all we say and do so that our new life in Christ may increase in us. Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and in treading in his footsteps we can never go wrong. Service should be our motto, and selfless service with love, our attitude.
Grant us the courage and generosity to accept Jesus’ humble service and unconditional love, by making him the mainstay of our everyday life, seeking him in all we do and transferring the same love to our fellowmen, living out Jesus’ instruction, to do to others what he does to us. Lord, our commission was not intended to stop at the Church door. We need to bear witness and be of service to humanity, in every sphere of life.
In the present times, it is easy for us to become disappointed or diminished when we face obstacles, blocks and adversity. To be with Jesus in these days requires humility and patience as we await with hope, for the coming of the fullness of your truth and glory to dawn on us. Lord, my prayer is to fulfill your Will in your Way, whatever the circumstances, in quiet assurance and faith that we will see, through our service to all, your ultimate service in restoring us to you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
