Prayer for November 25: Please pray with me. Where do we start today Lord? Yesterday in the US we said thank you, and today we say “get out of the way, it’s mine. It’s on sale for a limited time. I have to have it.” We think that our stuff will fulfill us, but we know it can’t. We get caught up in the masses who clamor for more, yet there will never be enough. Today is Black Friday – a day dedicated to savings. But I wonder how many of us will recall another Friday, Good Friday, in which the savings were eternal and far more important. Forgive us as we turn your birthday into a golden calf to worship. Help us to see that you are the present that has come and will come again. Help us to live our lives with the joy you give. Amen.
