Lord, Prepare Me to be a Sanctuary

Posted by Father Gary Herbst on

“Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary” go the words of one of our favorite contemporary hymns.  Those words come to mind when I reflect on the world events of the past week.

If there was ever a time to claim the concept of sanctuary it’s now.  With the fears of terrorists real and imagined crowding our hearts we certainly need to look at ourselves as being a sanctuary, a holy place and a place of peace.  

In the sanctuary of our heart we can feel safe and protected in the power of God’s Holy Spirit transforming us and making us “bullet proof” to the threats of the world around us.
