Prayer for September 18

Prayer for September 18: Please pray with me.  God of truth, you are the truth.  We are not.  We often like to claim that we know the truth.  Some love to wrap themselves in what they think is the truth.  It makes us feel superior – closer to you.  Yet, here’s the thing.  We are broken people.  Our relationship with you is broken.  So is our relationship with ourselves, with others, and the rest of creation.  Broken.  Mend these relationships Lord.  Only you can do that.  And it isn’t through head knowledge.  It’s by grace.  It’s by encountering us.  It’s by loving us.  It’s by feeding us.  When we are fed with these things, then you send us out to serve and proclaim your Good News to those around us – those that are broken, just like us.  Amen.
