Prayer for August 3: Please pray with me. Eternal God, today we pray that our eyes might be open and see that all that is in the world is but a short breath – here today and gone tomorrow. Why do we attach ourselves to these things? Why do we place so much importance to stuff? Yet we know that one day we will die and it will be left to someone else to deal with. Open our eyes to see what matters most is you. Help us to let go of the things we think are important and come running to you. Amen.
