Prayer for September 14: Please pray with me. God of all creation, today we come to you to ask that you radically transform us. We boldly ask that you shift our understanding. Help us to stop fighting over power, or even just shifting power from one group to another. Help us to recognize that this is the story of humanity – a flawed story that never ends up well for anyone. Open our eyes and hearts to seeing that what you are doing is radically different – implementing a completely different society – one where the fight for power isn’t the focus. Make us instruments of your word of hope for a hopeless world. Amen.
