Prayer for December 20: Please pray with me. God of all, today we pray that you shake us up. Rip us from our sinful desire to divide people into camps that are on “our” side and “their” side. This is ridiculous Lord! How dare we separate your creation and children. How dare we claim that you support our cause. How pompous of us to even think that we could use you for our own purposes. If we need humbled, then humble us. And as you humble us, help us to know that you are right there with us and that there are no sides – except the sides we create. Amen.
