Prayer for December 26: Please pray with me. God who is with us, set our hearts free from the bondage of sin in all of its many forms. Set us free from our attempts to grasp hold and hang on to our sins that give us false security. Set us free from pride that pushed others away and below us. Set us free from walls that we erect to divide your children from one another. Set us free from seeking wholeness apart from you. Set us free Lord so that we can freely service you in carrying out your mission – to reconcile people and all of creation to you. Amen.
