Prayer for October 14

Prayer for October 14: Please pray with me. Empowering God, today we come to you in humility.  Help us to see that the purpose of power is not to grab it, hoard it, and keep others away with it.  Rather, cleanse us of the addition to power over people, institutions, animals, and the rest of creation.  You made us for so much more than that.  Help those of us who have some level of power to use it as you call us to – to empower those around us and in so doing that we may all recognize that we are all children of God.  Amen.
