Prayer for April 1: Please pray with me. God of life, you are our life. Too often we create idols though – things that get in the way of worshiping you. Why do we create idols? Why do we desire to be in charge? Why? Help us to let go of these things. Help us to stop manipulating things and misuse them to be a replacement for you. Whether the idols are political, religious, beliefs, ideas, or other things in our life, help us to see them for what they are – tools. Amen.
