This is the first time I’ve posted my intercessions for worship. It occurred to me that I ought to share them, and capture my thoughts and inspirations.
This week, the lectionary carries a strong message of God’s abundance in the wilderness. I’m just as bad as anyone else for forgetting, and seeing everything through the eyes of scarcity. We keep falling into the stinking thinking that we don’t have enough – that we need more and more. How can we survive this never-ending stress that can’t ever be satisfied? And if we can’t stop thinking about what we don’t have, how can we remember what we do have? I lose before I ever start, forgetting that I never needed to run in the race at all!
