Rogate (Easter 6) Sermon, 2016
Rev. Benjamin Tyler Holt
You can’t always get what you want. But…what?
But if you try sometimes, well, you might find, you get what you need.
The world teaches us that if we try, we get what we need. If we put forth the effort necessary, we get what we need.
It’s up to us.
That’s what the world teaches.
Today, Jesus teaches us to pray, and so it’s good to ask:
Does prayer rely upon your faithfulness or God’s?
Should the Rolling Stones have taught us to sing, “You can’t always get what you want…so pray the Lord’s Prayer, because God’s going to provide your daily bread”?
That wouldn’t have sold many albums, but it’s right.
