Prayer for March 15: Please pray with me. Long ago, it was written for a certain leader to beware the Ides of March. And death came. Why oh Lord, do we strive for power – to obtain it, to keep it from others, to use it to the detriment of others. Hoarding power leads to fights and ultimately death. Forgive us when we seek power and our own kingdom as opposed to seeking your kingdom. Amen.
