Prayer for March 7: Please pray with me. God who calls on us to follow, give us the courage to follow. Let’s be honest Lord, following you can suck at times. We can get whiny. We don’t like to be uncomfortable. We like our convenience. Serving isn’t either of those things. Following you isn’t comfortable. Not when you call on us to die to our selves daily and follow you. We’d rather not. But then remind us of something important – that you are a self-emptying God. A God that loves creation so much, that you would empty yourself completely for your creation. Help us to follow you – even when we don’t to. Especially when we would rather go a different direction. Open our eyes to see your way and your path. Turn out hearts to follow your path. Amen.
