#637 - I Feel Powerless
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I try to get people to move. They won't budge. I try to get people to act. They keep standing still. I try to persuade people to change the way they think. They don't hear me. I try to get people to see the urgency in a situation. They aren't interested. I try to get people to lend a hand. They are too busy. I try to get people to pray for me. They say they will tomorrow. Father, I give up. I can't change people. I can't get people to do what I want them to do. I am powerless. Help me to understand that my only responsibility is to love them. What they do with that love is not my business. That's between You and them. Help me to understand that I am planting seeds, even if I will never see a plant sprout. Someday, when I'm gone from their life, my love for them will be recalled and it will resonate. It will impact their life. Father, help me to understand that the love You have called me to give is resonating with people, people who may never admit they are giving it any consideration. Give me comfort that I am being the messenger You want me to be. You are the one who will use that message of love in people's ears as You please and when You please. Amen.
