A Prayer for Unsettled Times
In light of the riots of June, 2020, I offer this prayer . . .
You see Your world,
In crazy chaos and implosion.
We are carnivorous, eating our own
and destroying ourselves in the process.
for we don't know what we are doing!
A cry for justice
should never bring more injustice!
My easy solution and desperate prayer is that you
But no them mentality ever brought peace and reconciliation.
I need Your perspective
So let me sit in your lap and sense your grief and compasion
So that I will enter my world with restored resolve
Understanding that I am one of them
Needing your forgiveness and direction.
Father of us all,
Hear our prayer for personal transformation.
