Prayer for March 19: Please pray with me. God who comforts the afflicted and afflicts the comfortable, come to us and stir us. You are a personal God who messes with our lives. But really, is this any different from anyone else that loves us? No. Love has a way of messing with a person – changing their life in ways they could not predict or control. You are a God of love. And you love us so much that you mess with our lives. You call us to ventures we never expect. You call on us to do things we never predicted. And you prepare us ways that don’t make sense at the time. Keep messing with us and our lives Lord. Keep loving us. Amen.
