Prayer for September 1, 2020: Please pray with me. God of transformation, do we really understand what that means? We get really attached to our buildings and our structures. We get really attached to the way we’ve always done it. But that’s not the point is it? Our institutions, buildings, and structures exist for one purpose – to assist in bringing about the Kingdom of God. And as the world changes, the way you go about this alters and adapts too. Institutions don’t exist for their own survival. Rather, they exist to serve a greater purpose and to change in order to serve that purpose. This is what life, death, and resurrection is all about. Let those things in our lives and our institutions that do not serve you die off. Let them die off so there is room for resurrection – new life. Better life. Let us let go of temporary attachments and be embraced by eternal purpose. Amen.
