Scripture: Isaiah 43:19
Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness.
Give me the courage to act, not with self interest, but with the interests of Jesus. Holy and Humble God, you demonstrated courage when you humbled yourself – when you took on the form of a servant – when you chose to live the life of love – when you refused to take on the ways of violence – when you demonstrated peace in the face of death – when you showed mercy to the executioners – when the fullness of your heavenly nature hung upon the cross. Give me the courage to live for the sake of those who have no voice; have no hope; have no power; have no influence. When I live for them, I live for you. And when I live for you, I no longer live for the world that tells me lies over and over again. Give me the courage to follow your Incarnate Word, Jesus. Amen.
