Prayer for April 9: Please pray with me. God of faith, you give us faith as a gift. Help us to use this gift to advance your kingdom. But so many of us will sit and wait though – we want a clear path and clear insight into what we are to do. We want answers Lord. Yet, you send people out without any answers more often than not. Why? Is it so that those you send will rely on you as opposed to their own insights? Is it because that is a key ingredient of faith? Is it so that we can experience what hope really means? Send us Lord. We have doubts and questions – and you welcome them. We want to know – and you send us anyway. Amen.
