A Prayer Prompted by Luke 8

Our Father in heaven,

In sending your Son, you gave us a person who we can watch, listen to, learn from and follow.  Help us to be receptive to all that Christ wants to teach us. In other words, give us “ears to hear.”  Help us to trust that you have everything under control, even when some of the circumstances in our lives seem out of control from our perspective.

We know that Jesus has all power over raging storms, physical illness, armies of demons and even death.  Let us always be ready to seek Christ’s help and to follow him all the days of our lives. This is obviously what you, as our Father, want for us.

In Christ,

Amen.
