On John 2

I am so hesitant to pray this, but there is a part of me that needs to pray for our hearts to be made angry with what makes your heart angry.  Are we getting it?  What your heart was all about?  I’m not sure, but when they got it wrong, you lost it.  You lost it on the people who thought they knew.

Give us zeal for your house, which is your body, which is us, which is to say, the very hearts you tenderly created and just long to know.   Your anger, and your justice and your mercy are all the tendrils for your heart–your intention, and your very being.

Help us to look to you for our action, for our indignation, for our anger and our joy.
