Noonday Prayer: Our Nation and Comfort



On the whole, Americans are the wealthiest people in the history of the world. And with that wealth comes access to comforts. We have more comfortable clothes and shoes, more comfortable chairs and beds; we have electricity, air conditioning, heating, cars, and so on. As our comfort has increased physically, we are increasingly inclined toward spiritual and mental comfort. We choose comfort over challenge, and the result is apathy about important issues and complaining about minor things.

PRAYER: O Lord, make us uncomfortable as a nation so that we would be provoked to seek out the answers to life’s more meaningful questions. Unsettle us, Jesus, and show us the emptiness of bare comfort. Grant us repentance and drive us to your call to follow you. For only in you can we find true life.
