Prayer for September 21: Please pray with me. God of all creation, today we come to you in thanksgiving. We thank you for this summer as it ends. We thank you for the blessings we received during this season and look forward to a new season set to dawn on us. Just as the seasons change and we ask that you work on our hearts and minds to change us to be instruments of your grace, mercy, and love. As the leaves begin to change and fall from the trees, we ask that anger, fear, and pride would be changed in us and fall from our very being. Change our reality just as the world around us changes. So that in changing our reality, we may respond in what we do and how we interact with those around us and with the world we live in. Amen.
