Prayer for August 29: Please pray with me. God who makes us uncomfortable, shake us from our slumber. Rattle us. Slap us if necessary. You don’t call to us to be comfortable, but rather to be so uncomfortable that a change can happen in us and around us. It is only in our uncomfortableness that real change will happen – that racism will cease, that violence will end, that idols will be shown as empty. It is only when we embrace being uncomfortable that we can accept God’s invitation to participate in the unfolding of God’s kingdom – right here and right now. Make us so uncomfortable that we feel we have no other option but to follow you Lord. Amen.
