Prayer for October 6

Prayer for October 6: Please pray with me.  Holy God, you are the one true God.  Yet, so often we turn to idols – those things which we put our trust in.  But really, how ridiculous is that?  All of these things are human made and eventually will fade away.  All these things which we put our hope for the future will disappear and be forgotten.  Yet for some reason we think it makes sense to put our hope and faith in them.  That’s crazy Lord!  But it makes sense if we believe that history started when we were born and will end when we die.  Yet, deep down we know this is not true.  You cut across time and space well before we arrived and will be here well after we die.  And you offer us a promise of hope, a promise of resurrection in a renewed and restored world.  We’d be crazy not to trust this promise, Holy God.  You always keep your promises.  Open our hearts to embrace your promise of hope.  Amen.
