Prayer for August 4

Prayer for August 4: Please pray with me. God of Truth, clear the blinders from our eyes.  Make us the blind man whom Jesus restored sight to.  Help us to see that we are not the ultimate arbiters of truth – only you are.  Move us away, far away, from our preferred binary beliefs that pit people against one another, that create the “good” and the “bad” people.  Push us far away from cornering people into either/or decisions.  Deep down we know that life is messy and full of gray.  That doesn’t mean that anything goes.  It means we are dealing with the reality of humanity.  And help us in our unbelief of thinking that our faith is based on what we believe.  If that is so, then our faith is pretty shaky and nothing more than a house of cards that is ready to cave in at any moment.  Open our hearts to live into trust in you, not knowing what the future holds, but knowing that you walk along side us as we journey forth.  Amen.
