Some of you know I really like Bruce Springsteen. I’ve quoted a few songs a few times. But today I was listening to a song of his that just reminded me so much of what part of the essence of following Jesus is about. I don’t think that’s what he was singing about, but that doesn’t matter to me much. What he sang taught me about Jesus anyway. He sings this:
- May your strength give us strength
- May your faith give us faith
- May your hope give us hope
- May your love bring us love / May your love bring us love
(Into the Fire, Bruce Springsteen)
That’s a pretty good prayer if I’ve ever heard one. And it’s one I’m praying today.
