Prayer for November 30

Prayer for November 30: Please pray with me.  Self-emptying God who encounters us over and over again, work in us a miracle.  We live in a world that lacks trust – trust in our institutions, in ourselves, in others, in you.  Why?  This is not your way.  Your way is risky – vulnerable, humble, grace-filled, mercy-filled.  Trust is so important, yet we focus our attention on the things and the voices that destroy trust.  Why?  Why are we attracted to these things and these voices?  Turn our ears to hear you – to hear you in your word, to hear you in our neighbor, to hear you in our enemy.  Turn our eyes to see you – to see you in the world around us, to see you in the suffering, to see you in the vulnerable.  Turn us towards trust – in you, in others, in ourselves.  Amen.
