Prayer for October 27

Prayer for October 27: Please pray with me.  God who doesn’t settle, today we pray a bold prayer.  You come before us, always reforming and making things new.  You make us uncomfortable in what you call us to be and do.  Help us to have eyes that are able to see the contrast that exists – are we in coffins or in flowerbeds?  You call us out of the coffins in our life – the things that keep us static, desiring unnecessary safety, and pointed towards death.  Instead you call us to be in flowerbeds – life that is beautiful, growing, changing, fertilized in the messy dirt of life, and interacting with those you love but society calls dangerous, ugly, and unwanted.  Toil in the flowerbeds of our life Lord so that we may be your fruit that feeds those around us with food, life, and your grace.  Amen.
