May 13,2010- A couple of years ago our team saw Craig Groeschel speak @ Catalyst '09 in Atlanta,Ga. His topic was from his book, "IT". I know I've been talking alot about this book, but I read it about a year ago and then my wife read it recently. I want to share a Franciscan prayer that Craig prayed at the end of the book. My prayer is that many will read this and continue to pray this prayer over our lives.
* May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.
* May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
* May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.
* And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.
