Prayer for September 10: Please pray with me. God of Glory, come to us. Enlighten our lives with your truth. But keep us humble too. We have a tendency to get big heads when we think we know a lot. We need your presence in our lives Lord. I’ll say it again – We need you in our lives. Too often we say that, but what we really mean is that we want you hovering over us, hanging out near us, but not in our lives. That makes us uncomfortable. When you are in our life, we can’t get away with turning a blind eye on the poor and homeless. We can’t turn away from the refugee and immigrant. We can’t turn our head from domestic violence and abuse. We can’t close our ears to the injustices we hear. We can’t ignore your call for our lives. You force these things into our faces and tell us to go and proclaim your Good News and live it out. Amen.
