Prayer for February 13: Please pray with me. God who saves, our prayer today is simple, yet apparently so difficult to remember, believe, and follow. You are the only one who can save us – not any politician, leader, policy, or political party – it’s not even close. Yet so many put their faith and trust in these things over faith and trust in you. Why? What do we hope to achieve with this? Glory, power, being remembered, greatness, wealth, longer life? These are all laughable compared to your love which endures forever beyond the control of any human ruler. You humble the proud and powerful and bless those who the world curses. Remind us of which side of the equation you call us to be on. Amen.
