#40WordPrayer on CHOICE

Turn from your fierce wrath;
change your mind and do not bring disaster on your people.
— Exodus 32:12b

God, when we see wrong, help us to choose right.

When injustice demands silence, let me speak.

When violence seeks apathy, let me act.

When busyness produces chaos, let me find peace.

For you guide us and you give us strength

to boldly stand, speak, and act.

Amen.

Bruce Reyes-Chow

Cover 40 Days, 40 Prayers, 40 Words: Lenten Reflections for Everyday Life — Bruce Reyes-ChowReflection Excerpt . . .

When I say to my kids “Make good choices,” my hopes are that they are kind when indifference would be easier, that they stand up for justice when injustice is faced, that they use their privilege so that others may know harmony and peace, and that they find relationships that will help them grow into who God intends them to be.
