A PRAYER FOR OUR CHURCHES
(TAKEN FROM CBF ATLANTA CONFERENCE, 2014)
May God bless our churches with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that we will live deep within our hearts.
May God bless our churches with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation, so that we work for justice, freedom, and peace.
May God bless our churches with tears to shed for those who suffer from rejection, starvation and war, so that we will reach out our hands to comfort and turn their pain into joy.
May God bless our churches with enough foolishness to believe we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what other claim cannot be done.
A GOOD SUGGESTION:
If you, like me, are deeply disturbed over news flashes of inhumane acts around the world, then try the practice of PRAYING THE NEWS.
