Prayer for February 13: Please pray with me. God of the both/and, you are the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. You are merciful and just. So often we believe and act as though there are only two choices and that we are stuck choosing one of them. Yet, you teach us over and over again that this is not so. You didn’t create the world to be a dichotomy of either/or, us/them. Rather, there is an alternative that makes this conflict unnecessary. Help us to embrace the both/and that characterizes who you are. Amen.
