God of justice and mercy,
we pray that your Spirit may enlighten our hearts and minds
as we seek a deeper communion with you.
Enable us to understand your Word for our lives,
and grant us the courage to make your ways, our ways.
Many voices clamor for our attention,
may we hear your voice above the many competing sounds,
and may we commit ourselves to following your guidance
for the path we must walk each day.
In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.
The easy path and a place of thorns. Not all sacrifices are pleasing to God. Which way is God's way?
