Prayer for October 13: Please pray with me. God of struggle, today we pray for strength. Actually, if we are honest with you and ourselves, we would be praying for weakness. We’d pray that you would open our eyes so that we could see that we are trying too hard, exhausting ourselves in the process. We don’t need strength God, we need to be stripped of our strength so that we sit in utter weakness and can then recognize how we need you and others around us. Amen.
