Prayer for June 6: Please pray with me. God of life, death, and resurrection – you are a cycle of life. Why do we proclaim this cycle, yet fear death as if it has the final say? We feel death is so permanent, yet, we believe in resurrection. But do we see resurrection in our midst? Do we have eyes that see you at work in the world? Do we have eyes that see how you restore? Life, death, and resurrection isn’t totally about physical life. It goes way beyond that. We experience this cycle in our congregations – or we are supposed to. Open us to recognize what needs to die in our congregations so that resurrection can happen. Amen.
