Prayer for June 27

Prayer for June 27: Please pray with me.  God of the cross, you call us to pick up our cross and follow you. Open our ears to hear how radical that call is.  It’s not about bearing a burden or hardship.  It’s not a first world problem either. It’s picking up the instrument that could kill us – all for your sake.  To live in a Christ-like manner where we love our enemies and offer grace to those we disagree with – even bitterly.  To live differently than what our culture clamors for – being right at all costs and trampling those in the way.  Help up to have the courage to die to self, to die to culture, and to live the way you call us to live, so that more can experience true life.  Amen.
