Overflow, Lord

Hi.

I’m sharing something other than a song (though no apologies for when I do that Mindful of this Sunday’s RCL John 12:1-8 passage where Mary devotedly anoints the feet of Jesus with expensive perfume, I’ve written the following, as either a Call to Worship/Opening Prayer/post-sermon prayer. Feel free to use.

 

BTW, I’ve always loved an early Matt Maher worship song Overflow.  It’s there as a video clip after the prayer.

David

OVERFLOW, LORD

overflow, Lord
Overflow, Lord
Overflow
Lord of life
Lord of love
indescribable
Uncontainable
Love at its highest,
deepest, widest
Extravagant
Over-the-top
A holy love.

Overflow in me
Overflow in each one of us
Overflow in the full power
of your mercy and love
Touch every crevice
Every resistant, shameful
corner of our being

Overflow in us, Lord
Deluge us
Overwhelm us
With your love beyond imagining
Love you offer us profoundly
“Life-changingly” in Jesus
Love that transforms
Love that forgives
Love that renews
Love that never holds back

God of the overflow
We come to you
Repentant
Humbled
Yet loved
And loved again
Overflow in us, Lord
Transform us in Jesus
Transform us by your Spirit
Transform us
by your creative hand, O God

So we might love you
Worship you
Be your difference-making disciples
Lord
Come
Overflow
Overflow
Overflow
