Prayer: Facing contempt

Dear God,

it is so difficult to deal with the contemptuous attitude
that some people have towards our faith
and our work for you.
It’s as if they have a mind-set
that blinds itself to any good that we do
and only focuses on imagined practices that we do not follow
and old quarrels that have long since died, or been settled.
No matter what we do,
we are ridiculed and scorned and told to ‘get a life.’
Yet we know that living in your way
brings joy and peace, and comfort and help
for the troubles that all of us must face from time to time.
