Prayer sacrament

Mirriam webster


 noun \ˈsa-krə-mənt\
: an important Christian ceremony

Every action of ours should be a prayer..a sacrament in the world.." 
Martin Buber

I've been wrestling with this line all day.  
After reading about the family in OK being killed by their 19 year old son,  a family we knew well when we were in Duncan, I've been trying to raise a prayer or two.  Where is the prayer in this? 

What if this was the first thing we taught our children about choices that confront them daily...would this action be a prayer? a sacrament in the world...a link to the might that inform their choices?   

What if we did that too..let every action be a prayer. ..  If you think over the day you had yesterday...or the day that is just before might that sentence inform your choices?  What if 10 friends started their day with this image...and then those 10 with 10. ...on and on...

Life in all its forms would be Holy.  The skies would be clear without pollution.  Monies would be spent for the uplifting of all for shelter, food, and education ...

What if that were a part of the measure we held up to our day?  In what ways did my actions serve as prayer? 

Could you do that for One day?    Would you try to do that?  Not just floating through the day...but consciously taking one step after another...being a prayer...being a sacrament.

Let's try.. Starting tomorrow...o God hear our Prayer. 

God abide, please
