Rough Draft Prayers: What we thought

Oh sweet and stubborn Jesus,

Help us to pour some water over you.

The you we’ve known since we were taught “perfect” mean “polished.” You, squeaky clean and working alone.  A one man show. This is the Jesus that won all the trophies. “My Jesus is a Roland Park Honors Student….again and again AND AGAIN!!!” 

We need to have it out with you, do some family therapy, try to see you and ourselves a little clearer. We need to know who and how you were before we ever ask what you would do. And while we’re at it, we need to learn a language for you that is real.

And help us to stay still when what we thought we knew washes away.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamen (again and again AND AGAIN!!!)
