Prayer for March 16, 2022: Please pray with me. God of expectations, too often we think our expectations are what matter. We think we have the divine inspiration to claim that our expectations are yours. But they aren’t. Often our expectations are flawed, or look no further than ourselves and our own interests. So what do you expect? Micah 6:8 says “and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Matthew 28 speaks of Jesus’ expectation that we will make disciples. Matthew 25 tells us that God expects us to love our neighbor by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, welcoming the stranger, caring for the sick, and visiting the imprisoned. But too often our society makes excuses to get out of these things, labels them to dismiss them, and more. What does God expect? That we listen to what God has been saying and do it if we claim to be a follower. It’s really that simple. Amen.
Call to Action – just live it.
