John 6: Litany and Prayer

Lord, we are hungry for your food.
We ask you to nourish our souls.

Lord, we are hungry for your food.
We ask you to strengthen our minds.

Lord, we are hungry for your food.
We pray for courage and wisdom.

Lord, we are hungry for your food.
Our souls are restless and unsatisfied.

Lord, we are hungry for your food.
Fill us with the Bread of Life.

Gracious God, sometimes we do not understand what Jesus is saying. We sympathize with the frustration and confusion of the disciples and those around him. Open our minds to a new and deeper comprehension of his teaching. Prepare us as a field to receive the lessons Jesus sows in our hearts, that they may come to an amazing harvest for you. Amen.
