Prayer for May 19

Prayer for May 19: Please pray with me. Holy God, today we pray that you would assist us in learning from the past, so as to avoid repeating the same mistakes.  Help us to let go of old, persistent false beliefs and ideas.  Give us the courage to point them out in ourselves.  Give us eyes to see them in our society.  Give us ears to hear them in the sounds around us.  Give us hearts ready to serve you.  Give us minds open to your Word, so that we may then go, called by you, out into a world that is bound by the past, that seeks a scapegoat, that is blinded by fear and anger.  Give us strength to carry your word to the world, but let it start within us first.  Amen.
