Prayer for October 4

Prayer for October 4: Please pray with me.  God of the universe, you have to be laughing.  You have got to be laughing at humanity and our ridiculous attempts to control things here on earth.  That works out so well so often doesn’t it?  Lord help us, for our own sake.  Strip us of our egos that make us think we know all the answers.  Open our hearts to recognize that the game of politics and partisanship is something in which no one wins in the end.  Instead, radically reorient us to a different way of living and being Lord.  A way of life in which we care for our neighbors, regardless of who they are.  A way of life in which we care for creation, so that it will be around for future generations.  A way of life in which we empower people rather than enslave them or make them dependent on our political systems that seek to consolidate power for its own sake.  Help us to see and know how ridiculous our power struggles are, and how dangerous and damaging they are to people.  Amen.
