A Prayer for Week 6
By Pastor Jake Ohlemiller, Grace United Methodist Church
Oh, dear God, dear gracious Light, how we are aching to see Your glory! How acclimated we are, with the eyes of our poor hearts, to squinting and straining for security in our dim-lit dungeons of subtle despair. Light our path to life and liberty, to beloved community, to belief. Shine in our murky abyss of scornful memes and slanted stories, and let us see blazing Truth in the clarity of Love. Shine in our overcast arena of partisan combat, where shadows slash and straw men stab, and let us see real possibilities of peace among neighbors--Dear Christ, God-made-flesh, illumine us, Be seen!
