Prayer for May 15

Prayer for May 15: Please pray with me.  Holy One, today we pray about control.  We lie to ourselves in believing that we are in control of our lives – that we are the arbiters of what will happen to us and when.  This is ridiculous.  All we need to do is look around us and see how little control we have over our lives.  But we fear not being in control Lord.  We are afraid of not knowing what will happen.  We are afraid and so we turn to things that off us a false sense of security, control, and knowing.  Forgive us for turning to these things instead of you.  Turn us towards you Lord – radically reorienting us to you – so that we can hear your message for us.  A message that tells us that we are not alone.  A message that says we don’t have to figure it out by ourselves.  A message that says that we are loved in immeasurable way.  Amen.
