Prayer for May 31: Please pray with me. God of prayer, listen to us when we plead with you. In several Psalms, there is a pleading and a prodding – a sort of cajoling if you will. You tell us you are a faithful God, but often it can be difficult to see that. Yet, you are faithful. Listen to our cries Lord. Listen when we ask for relief. Send relief to all who suffer – the homeless, those that are trafficked, prostitutes, those caught in drugs, victims of domestic violence, and more. Free them from the bonds that hold them. Change the hearts of those that imprison others. Hear us O Lord. Amen.
