God of Grace and God of Glory forgive us when we failed to recognize you. Just like the two men who walked with you to Emmaus, we didn’t see it was you. We didn’t see it was you who was helping us when we were in trouble. We didn’t see you working behind the scenes to help us keep things together. We didn’t see you when you were holding us up when we fell to temptation. We didn’t see you opening doors, creating opportunities or protecting us from dangers seen and unseen.
Open our eyes today so we can see you clearly. Open our ears to hear what you have to say to those who have ears to hear. As we spend time with you on our own Emmaus roads, may we walk long enough until our hearts burn within us. In Jesus name, Amen.
