Prayer for November 17, 2020: Please pray with me. God who abides, you tell us that you abide with us. You didn’t ask if we wanted you to, you just did. That’s probably for the best though. I wonder how many would welcome you willingly. You write your laws on our hearts. You didn’t ask. You just did. And it’s a good thing too – I doubt many of us would have welcomed that. We seem to be kind of busy with unimportant things to be bothered with you all too often. Sure, we say the right things, but then we think we can fool you in our inaction. I’m not sure why though. Abide in us anyway. Continue to write on our hearts anyway. Continue to transform us anyway. This is how the world changes – by us being changed. Amen.
