Prayer for February 16

Prayer for February 16: Please pray with me. God of life, today we pray that life may abound and thrive. We are surrounded by death – it comes at us in force and if we are honest, it comes because we invite it in.  Yet, this is not your intention for us.  Help us to let go of things that bring death – our worship of being right, our divisions that separate, our broken relationships, our violence, our demands and thirst for control.  You have a different intention Holy One.  You promise a time when you will dwell with us and death will be no more.  We wait in anticipation for that time.  Forgive us when we become obstacles to the fulfillment of your reign.  For we know not what we do.  Come Holy One. Fill our hearts with a burning desire for life for all.  Use us to create an environment where life can thrive and death is discarded.  Come Holy One.  Amen.
