Prayer for May 8

Prayer for May 8: Please pray with me.  God of Truth, today we lift up all who believe that salvation comes through their right thinking – that they must have “the” correct beliefs in order to be saved.  Often this becomes a quest in which we mistake ourselves and our intellect as our own salvation.  You call us to come and follow you – as we are.  You call on us to follow you and in the process we are changed by you.  This is what faith does – it changes us, transforms us.  It moves us from what was dead to new life.  In faith, we move from just wanting to claim the label as your follower to actually living it out.  Move us away from fighting about faith to living it out as you call each one of us.  Amen.
