Prayer for August 9: Please pray with me. Faithful God, sometimes we forget what faith is. We want to believe that faith is something we do. We are told though that faith is the assurance of things unseen – that it comes from you and is a gift. How else to make any sense of it? You give us faith, we respond with trust. The faith you give, makes us able to go and be servants to those around us. We trust you God. Amen.
