Lord, today we pray. We pray for those we love. We confess that we have not always loved them well. We pray for those who love us, acknowledging that we have not always made it easy on them to understand how to love us well. We pray for our enemies, for we often prefer to despise them more than we desire to love them, which says way more about us than it does them.
In all these things, we come to your our source of all good things. We ask for your forgiveness, and your guidance. We thank you for your patience with us even as we lament our own sloth in the work of transformation.
Get down here and help us! Please! We are in bad shape!
