Prayer for January 20, 2020

Prayer for January 20, 2020: Please pray with me.  Word of God, you are the God of conversation.  Yet, we often think we are the gods of conversation and that you must follow our command.  But you created us.  You are literally the Word made flesh.  Language is a characteristic of who you are.  And we have the audacity to think that language is our domain.  There’s a word for that too – arrogance.  Forgive us for our abuse of language – especially when we use language to oppress and exploit.  Forgive us when we use language as a weapon to hurt and destroy.  Forgive us when we use language to divide and conquer.  Change our hearts so that the language of love may come out of us in word and deed.  Transform us to be your followers and follow your lead with all around us.  Alter our prayers.  Adjust our postings.  Let your Word come through us.  Let others know that we are your followers based on our language – in the wide variety of ways that we use it.  Amen.
