Prayer for November 4, 2019

Prayer for November 4: Please pray with me.  God of Truth, have mercy on us.  Too often we dismiss your Truth because it doesn’t align with what we want and what we think we need.  It doesn’t match up with our politics.  It doesn’t match up with how we treat people – those close to us, strangers, and enemies.  It doesn’t match up with how we view money.  It doesn’t match up with our self-centeredness.  It doesn’t match up with our desire to consume more and more, and accumulate more and more.  It doesn’t match up with us.  And that’s the problem – we think we are the center of the universe in which everything else, including You, have to match up with us.  How wrong we are.  Radically reorient us so that we can be open to receive forgiveness for this.  Radically reorient us so that we can receive your grace and love.  Radically reorient us so that we can participate in the unfolding of your kingdom here, now.  Amen.
