I found this prayer that I wanted to share with you almost 3 weeks ago when at Connection I prayed, “may your lives be messed up, may your lives be uncomfortable, so you seek Him in the midst of your emptiness” Today while reading a blog from the Life Mission Pastor at Granger Community Church (that by the way is a United Methodist Church). Read with your heart:
May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers,
half truths, and superficial relationships,
so that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice,
oppression, and exploitations of people,
so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those
who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war,
so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
and to turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with enough foolishness
to believe that you can make a difference in this world,
so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
