Prayer for March 11: Please pray with me. God of Sabbath, give us rest. The world and its empires demand work. They demand a worship of money. They equate production with worth. But you are different. You are the author of worth and value for humanity. And your value and worth for humanity are not tied to what we produce, what we have, what we do, or anything like that. Our worth and value exist because you create us and claim us. That is all. There is nothing that we can do that can ever change our value or worth in your eyes. Help us to let go of work as our identity. Help us to let go of money being our decision maker. Help us to let go of the idols we cling to – the things that lie to us and tell us that we are in control. Instead, let us cling to you. Amen.
