Prayer for May 4, 2021

Prayer for May 4, 2021: Please pray with me. God who feeds us and teaches us, we are hungry in many ways. Thankfully, you come in a variety of ways and through a variety of people. You don’t live in the dichotomy of either/or. Thank you. You live in the both/and. You live in abundance, not scarcity. We often think we are stuck in scarcity. But this isn’t about material things. It’s more about our attitude and mindset about creation, others, and ourselves. You give us everything we need, but often we are blind to seeing it. Help us to see it and to see how our hoarding impacts those around us. Amen.
