Prayer for August 30: Please pray with me. God of light, today we pray for those who feel lost in the darkness. It seems as though there is darkness all around us and we fear it. Some darkness is the type we see while other darkness is the type we feel. Yet, we know that darkness is nothing but the absence of light. When you shine in our our lives, you vanquish the darkness and we can’t help but see. Prepare our eyes for the times that you come into our lives. Prepare our hearts that we may be open to seeing. Prepare our arms that we would let go of the darkness and embrace your light. Amen.
