#40WordPrayer on Power — Bruce Reyes-Chow

#40WordPrayer on POWER

I am God, and also henceforth I am God;
there is no one who can deliver from my hand;
I work and who can hinder it?
— Isaiah 43:13 alt.

God, we have a warped view of your power.

We believe power is only about strength.

We hope that power is used against our enemies.

We claim your power as our own.

Help us to reimagine your power:

power as liberation, power as freedom, power as creation.

Amen

Bruce Reyes-Chow

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

We have a warped and one-sided view of power. It seems that we can only understand power these days by engaging in a contest of physical strength, watching competitors rise to the top, or celebrating the destruction of our enemy. God’s power lies not in these things but in how we go about changing the world.
