Prayer for October 18

Prayer for October 18: Please pray with me. Incarnate God, today we pray that we would hear Jesus’s call to be persistent in prayer.  Let what we pray about matter so much that we, like the widow, get in your face with our petitions.  We aren’t crazy enough to think we have the answers God, so we aren’t demanding that you answer our petitions the way we want.  Instead, we ask that through prayer you transform us to be instruments of your kingdom and will.  And in so doing, send us out to be persistent in living out our call to love our neighbors, to be stewards of creation, to sound an alarm where there is injustice, and to seek to reconcile broken relationships.  Amen.
