A Prayer for Wednesday, November 16, 2011

“The Things that Are God’s”

Keep us vigilant, O God, in rendering appropriate allegiance to the various loyalties and obligations in our lives, but keep us especially vigilant in rendering utter and ultimate allegiance to you and you alone.


“’Show me the coin used for the tax.’ And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, ‘Whose head is this, and whose title?’ They answered, ‘The emperor’s.’ Then he said to them, ‘Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.’ When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.” (Matthew 22:19-22)
