Prayer for July 22

Prayer for July 22: Please pray with me. Holy God, today we pray that we would feel your presence in our lives.  So often we are given conditions – that we will only be happy if we buy a product. That we will only be safe if we vote a certain way. That we will only be fulfilled if we marry the “right” person as others seem to think. That we will only reach our potential when we have the “right” job. That we will only be this or that when…  Others continue to tell us that if we do this, then God will do that.  We thank you God that you do not offer an if/then.  Instead remind us that you live by a because/we can.  Because God has done this for us and for creation, we can go and do for others.  Because God loves us, we can go and love the unlovable of society.  Because God has saved us, we can go and serve others in gratitude.  Because God has made us perfectly, we can go and touch others’ lives with our God given talents in ways that convey God’s love to them as well.  Amen.
