Prayer for October 26: Please pray with me. God of life, we lift up our lives to you. We are told that you are a jealous God. This means you want the whole of our being, not the left overs or just a portion of who we are – you want the whole us. Take it Lord. Give us the courage to let go. Give us the courage to be at your mercy. Do we trust you with our whole lives? If we are honest, we struggle with this. But what if…There are always what ifs. We make contingencies, just in case you don’t keep your word. But how ridiculous. Who ever heard of God not keeping God’s word? Help us to set aside our man-made beliefs about the way we think the world should be and instead be embraced by you. Amen.
