Prayer for May 24: Please pray with me. God of hope, shed light on us. The world wants to throw shade on us. Evil is relentless – a hard task master that is never satisfied. There is never enough for evil. But our rest comes when we find our rest in you. Your ways are a light yoke compared to the ways of the world. It is easy to feel like we are drowning in a sea of fear and anger. Yet your ways are far different than the world’s. Your ways are subversive, visionary, and expansive. We get glimpses of your kingdom. But we want more. We need more Lord – or so we shout out to you. You know what we need. You give us what we need. Send us hope. Send us love. And send us out. Amen.
