Prayer for August 5: Please pray with me. God of time, the months come and the seasons change, yet you remind us that you are the ever changeless eternal one. As we move into the heat of August in the northern hemisphere, be with all those who seek cooling. Cool our hearts that have been engulfed in a flame of hatred, division, anger over politics, religion, and other matters of life. Melt our hearts and consume us in a the fire of your Holy Spirit – a fire that fills us with love, forgiveness, grace, and mercy. Amen.
