Apostles: The West Rose Window At Chartes (9)

The twelve Apostles sit, two by two, on either side of Christ. Their hands to direct attention to their Center, the Center of All. How will I use my hands to draw others to God today?

My Prayer

God, may my hands serve You as they photograph, write, dial telephone numbers, arrange flowers, and connect with others in diverse ways.

Scriptural Touchstone: 

Now during those days Jesus went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God. And when day came, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, and James, and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Simon, who was called the Zealot, and Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. Luke 6:12-16 (NRSV)

Invitation to Pray:

Make a gesture with your hands that symbolizes your prayer of worship, service, and love. Hold it for at least 60 seconds as it teaches you more of what it means to pray.
