Prayer Prescription for This Date

PRAYER Rx --- November 16

Our Father, who art in heaven, we thank You for Christian believers who defend You as Creator of our universe and our humanity. Whether it took six of our 24-hour days or six of Your 1,000-year days,* here we are, and apes are still apes! What does matter is that we can enjoy the complex nature, the beauty, and the awesomeness of Your creation. However, without building a relationship with You, our "great knowledge" may very well bring on our downfall. ... Forgive us, Lord, for our arrogance, our willfulness, our immaturity, and our self-centeredness. Forgive us for thinking that we can manage our lives. ... our nation, and our world-relations without seeking Your guidance. Teach us to want more of You, not less; to see that without You we cannot fulfill Your purposes or our dreams. You alone are our only hope, our sustaining grace.

In Jesus' name we pray.


     * (See II Peter 3:8)
