6th April – A Prayer for Today

Lord Jesus,
We need to relearn some economics
Because demand is not the same as need
Because knowing the price of things
doesn’t mean we know what they are really worth
Because the value added to life can’t be measured by GDP.

On this day
When we recall how you drove out of the temple
the money changers
(the money makers and money takers)
Help us to learn the economics of the Kingdom
Where the measure is always love.
