For those who don't pray, and for those whose prayers serve to make them arrogant.
For those who do not read their Bibles, and for those who read to sharpen their "swords" against the imagined enemy.
For those who see no intercourse between the Bible and daily life, and for those who imagine the challenge of scripture can be condensed into a red or blue platform.
For those who are afraid of God, and those who are too chummy with God.
For those who have never experienced the Holy Spirit and because of withered hearts have prevented others from drawing near; and for those who have experienced the Holy Spirit and because of self-righteousness have prevented others from drawing near.
Let our prayers today, O God, make us meek, humble, lowly of heart, ready to serve and to see you in those we serve.
