Prayer for June 26: Please pray with me. God who comforts, you are our only comfort. You are the one who gives us life. You don’t call on us to be comfortable followers of you. But you do give us comfort. Following you is not easy, but the burden is light. Following you doesn’t make sense to the world, but when we follow we see it is the only way that makes any sense at all. Following you means facing resistance, yet, you don’t call us to fight back – rather you call us to love even more. Love is the only way. Work through us Lord to show that love to all around us. Amen.
