Prayer for December 14

Prayer for December 14: Please pray with me.  God of wisdom, you tell us a great deal.  If only we would listen. How many times must we make the same mistake?  How many times must we ignore or reject you and your ways because we think we know better than you?  How many times do we, like ancient Israel, clamor for a king – even when you show us the ridiculousness of this, the consequences of this, the destruction that it brings.  We want a king!  We want lots of different kings.  Ultimately, we want to be king.  To be in control.  To be you.  But we are not.  Not even close.  Forgive us for this.  Set us on the right path.  Send us out.  Amen.
