Prayer for May 23: Please pray with me. God of faith, you claim us. We are yours. This doesn’t mean that what you offer us is a set of suggestions that we can ignore. Instead, you claim us and call us to follow you. Where else are we to go? Only you have the words of eternal life. What else can compare? Nothing. Come into our lives and transform us. We want a miracle Lord. We need a miracle. We implore you – give the world peace like it has never known. Break the world’s loyalties and pursuits of power for its own sake. Instead, humble to proud, knock down those who flaunt their power and exploit others. Raise up the poor and powerless. Let your kingdom come. Make us instruments of your will. Amen.
