Prayer for May 2: Please pray with me. Calming God, today we pray for all people who are enslaved by fear. The gospel of fear is preached at us constantly, yet you have a different message – a Gospel of peace, love and grace. It is a message so desperately needed in our world of chaos and confusion. Please send messengers out into the world to spread this message of hope to a hopeless world, a message of love to a divided and angry world, and a message of peace to a world that finds new ways to destroy. Bless these messengers so they can in turn bless all that hear the message. Amen.
