Prayer for December 1: Please pray with me. God who doesn’t forget, today we pray for all those who are plagued with memories that haunt them – memories of abuse, of loss, of pain, of suffering, of insult, of demeaning, of dehumanization, of fights, of war. Memories are a part of who we are Lord, and they remind us that we aren’t perfect, and neither are others. Help us to turn our painful memories into something useful – something that would help us to answer our call to serve, to comfort, to accompany others in their pain and suffering. Amen.
