Prayer for October 7: Please pray with me. God of all humanity, today we pray that you rip our desire to divide and separate people away from us. It’s extremely exhausting keeping track of who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. It’s draining to investigate what everyone believes to see who the heretics are. It’s tiring to maintain the mantle of protecting you as though you need us for anything. Instead, you, tell us that your yoke is light. It has to be compared to the huge divisive stone we put on our own backs. Cut us free from this stone so we can fully be who you created us to be. Amen.
