Isaiah 56: 1-3, 6-8, Ps. 67,
John 5: 33-36

House of prayer for all people

Christ’s cathedral
your body, God’s temple drawing all people
into your mothering concern being God’s house of prayer.

Were they preparing,
the kings,
for their long journey following a light
like that of the Baptist?
Light that would bring them
to the true light of Christ,
the lamp they found on your knee.
The light of God’s house of prayer.

We each are God’s house of prayer. In this busy time it is so easy to forget this. I read of a busy mother who would sit for 15 minutes each day with her apron over her head. Her children knew that this was her time with God and would not disturb her.
