Prayer for February 20, 2020: Please pray with me. God of life, you come to us and I wonder – what is it that you think about humanity? Humans have perfected abusive systems designed to gain power and money. We have been doing this for millennias. And we keep doing this. There’s nothing new about this. There’s nothing special about the people who maintain abusive systems. The abuse is the same, only the names of the victims change. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Your ways are not our ways. Your thoughts are not our thoughts. We are grateful for that. Upset the apple cart of abusive systems in our midst. Turn the tables of abusive systems. End these systems so that all people can live a thriving life. Amen.
