Prayer for May 18: Please pray with me. God of all, today we pray a difficult prayer – one we would rather not pray at all. Open our eyes to see our own arrogance – how it hurts others and ourselves. Be gentle in doing this though, we pray. We are so often wrapped up in ourselves that we need to be let down softly so as not to completely break. Help us to turn from our egos, our privileges and our high opinions of ourselves so that we can see, acknowledge and serve the “others” that are around us. Amen.
