Lord, make me uncomfortable

I don't think many of us are willing to start our prayers, "Lord, make me uncomfortable...." - It seems a weird prayer to pray. However Richard Rohr has this very challenging blessing, which he invites us to pray.

"God, bless me with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships, so that You will live deep in my heart.

God, bless me with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people and the earth so that I will work for justice, equity, and peace.

God, bless me with tears to shed for those who suffer so that I will reach out my hand to comfort them and change their pain with joy.

God, bless me with the foolishness to think that I can make a difference in the world, so that I will do the things which others say cannot be done.  Amen."

Join me in praying this prayer today.

Come on, be daring for a change:)

Living in Grace
