Prayer for February 5, 2021: Please pray with me. Foundational God, you set the foundation of the world and all that is true. You are the foundation of all things. Yet, so many accept foundations that are not of you and have no relation to what you are about. Too many accept that the ends justify the means. That is not what you have ever taught, yet many of your followers adhere to this belief and see no conflict with that and claiming to believe in you. Why? Cleanse us from insisting on our own ways and on adopting ideas that are in conflict with you and your ways. Open our hearts and minds to seeing the world differently – through your eyes. Open us to seeing the image of God in others. Open us to seeking shalom. Open us. Amen.
