38. Prayers for a Life in Tension by Stephen W. Hiemstra

Prayers_of_a_Life_in_Tension_webGod of All Wonders,
The heavens declare your glory and we are witnesses to it. Our eyes have seen and our ears have heard of the splendor of your creation. We give testimony to the love that you showered on us when Jesus died a cruel death in our place and for our salvation he rose from the dead. How can our lips then be silent? We are citizens of heaven and sojourners in this land. Teach us, Lord, to testify in humility to your love for us and to abstain from the passions of this life that wage war on our souls and to share your passion for our lives and for our salvation with gentleness and respect. If we then should suffer, then may it be for your kingdom and your righteousness and not for an evil that we ourselves have done. In the power of your Holy Spirit, help us to be salt and light. In Jesus’ precious name and for his glory. Amen.
