Prayer for July 14: Please pray with me. God of firsts, today we pray that you will open our eyes to see how you first moved in the world, in our lives and in the lives of others. Help us to see how you first gave us everything – life, love, trust, mercy, forgiveness, peace. Make us instruments of these things to those around us so that we may better see your kingdom unfolding right before our eyes. Amen.
