Prayer for September 2, 2020: Please pray with me. God of the cosmos, why do we often have underwhelming expectations of you? You are the God who creates all things, brings order out of chaos, overthrows empires, and conquers death. Yet, we limit what you are about so we can put you in a bottle and pull you out like a genie when we want you. Why do we lack such imagination when it comes to you. You are the God who shows up when it is least expected. And you show up in incredible ways. You transform all you encounter. Please transform our world in big ways. Put an end to injustices like racism, sexism, and economic exploitation. Put an end to hatred and violence. Let your ways reign over us. Amen.
