The lowest place

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    "When you are invited to a wedding banquet,          do not sit down at the place of honor...          but go and sit down at the lowest place.”                   —Luke 14. 8, 10          

    Lord,

I come to your table washed of deserving, of measure, of worth, but lovingly invited.

I take the lowest place so that this day may be pure gift, pure gift.

I take the lowest place because I am here not to surpass my neighbors but to love them.

I take the lowest place because I wish to sit close to you, where you always sit.

I take the lowest place because I love to watch my bridegroom search the room and come for me.
