Prayer for June 30: Please pray with me. God who is, today we pray a prayer of thanksgiving for helping us to get through the first half of 2016. We thank you for the blessings you have bestowed on us. We thank you for walking with us through the valleys of pain, suffering and loss. We ask that you bless the second half of the year. Give us wisdom, courage, patience, love and a forgiving heart. Help us to share these things with those around us. Amen.
