The Inheritance of Attentiveness

The Inheritance of God

Second Sunday After Pentecost 2019, Year C

The prophet Elijah was a great risk-taking communicator, speaking God’s truth to power. In the previous chapter, he had declared the God of Israel’s superiority over the prophets of Baal, which resulted in the killing of these prophets. This sets us up for today’s scene, where Jezebel promises to exact revenge upon Elijah.

Offertory Prayer

God of mercy and grace, your patience with your children is beyond our imagination. We bring our gifts to the altar, and there are days when we give them out of fatigue rather than joy. We sing the hymns of praise and songs of commitment; but inside, we are feeling spent out, like your prophet Elijah in the wilderness. “Let me lie down under a tree and die rather than be sent out on one more mission for you.” So show as one more glimpse of your divine purpose, and inspire us again to get up and go into a needy world. Not just our gifts, but dedicate our feet, our hands, our hearts to your purposes in our world. In your holy name, we pray. Amen. (1 Kings 19:1-4, (5-7), 8-15a)
