Prayer for the week: ‘Our patient teacher, our ever-pursuing Lord’
Lord Jesus, this story tells us so much about you.
not passive ethereal being, but a pursuer.
not a benign, nice associate, but one who risks speaking the truth in love.
not a coercive overpowering presence, but a patient teacher.
not an isolated, individualistic prophet, but a guest, even a host,
whose true character is seen in table fellowship.
We praise you as our patient teacher, our ever-pursuing Lord.
