Prayer for August 11: Please pray with me. God who shows up in the midst of tumult and chaos, boy do we need you. Our world is crazy, yet the crazy thing is we think this is new. Chaos has been the norm for so long, yet we forget that it is normal. We often feel like we are like the disciples being tossed about in the boat and fear everything around us. And in that fear we erect walls and ways to keep the chaos and others away. But they never work. Isolation is never the answer. If it was, Peter would have drowned. But then you show up Lord and bam, something even crazier happens – grace. you give us exactly what we don’t deserve – a hand reaching out to us and saving us. Thank you. Amen.
