Prayer for August 25: Please pray with me. God of community, today we pray that you would lay a foundation of trust in our relationships. Trust takes a great deal of work and when it is destroyed, it takes so much time and energy to restore. Without trust, we become selfish, only looking out for ourselves. That makes us small. Holy God, expand us in ways that surprise us. You instill faith in us and call on us to respond with trust to your call. Give us the courage to answer that call – to take a leap of faith and to trust you. You never fail us. Amen.
