Divine Disrupter - a prayer

O Rushing Wind, Burning Bush, Tongue of Fire,      awaken us from our slumber;      wrestle us from our comfort. Forgive . . .      our fear           disguised as righteous indignation;      our hatred           heralded as piety;      our selfishness           depicted as personal freedom;      our pride           veiled as gratitude;      our complacency           presented as patience. Forgive us. May our repentance      be evidenced        in our turning           toward one another      and           away from that which           we allow to separate us. May we experience your glory      revealed           in the faces           of those we are           reluctant to see. We pray, O Divine Disrupter, breathe in us      life; set us      ablaze; grant us      utterance           to speak                your grace,                your mercy,                your justice      in a language           your world                can hear.
