Prayer for Epiphany Week 2

 

I know it has been quite some time since I included my prayer reflections. Life has been busy but I aim to renew the practice. This is my prayer reflection on John 2:1-11, the lectionary text for today. 

 

Six stone jars stood empty.

The had held the water

for the washing of hands.

Now they sat hollow in the entry way.

 

Mother Mary had come and

begged You,

Defend the honor of the hosts.

May no one know the limits of their hospitality,

that they invited guests but did not have enough.

 

Six stone jars stood empty.

They had held the water

for the washing of hands.

You had them filled to the brim.

 

And when they poured them out.

Wine flowed–better than any wine

the guest had, had  before. the chief steward

was full of wonder (though he did not know the source).

 

Six stone jars stood empty

They had held the water,

which had turned to wine.

Long after the guests had their fill

and Ordinary Time resumed they held

the memory of the wine on their tongue.

Later they would remember You were there.

The day that everything changed.
