Journey 3 Day 12 – Cherry Wisdom

01 Apr

Stephen Cherry’s wonderful, stirring, helpful book ‘Barefoot Disciple‘ is so profound and so helpful for me not only on this journey but also where I am at in my life and circumstances right now.

I am becoming convinced that this is a book that is so key in transforming hearts, minds, actions and attitudes.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. You may not have the time or finance to read or buy it but this blog post on some of the key themes is a great start.

This is my prayer for today, written by Stephen Cherry

A Prayer for Barefoot Disciples

Lord Jesus Christ,
we follow you
as you empty yourself of power,
gaze into the eyes of need and pain,
and tread the way of humility
all the way to the Cross.
Teach us how to walk,
shedding the shoes of pride and conceit,
ceasing to complain,
delighting in the life you offer
and learning more of what it is to be humbly open
and alive in your love.
We ask this in the name of Your Father
and the power of Your Spirit.
Amen.
