Prayer for the Day
Revealing God, we are a skeptical people. Throughout our lives we have been taught that what we see, touch, and hear are the most real. We barely believe until something is proven to our eyes or hands. We cannot help but ask with John if you are the one from whom we have been waiting. Move in our minds and hearts that we might see through the shadows of our certainty to notice even the smallest transformations around us. Then, may we proclaim that you are indeed the one! Amen.
What are you waiting for? What conditions do you place on knowing for sure?
