Prayer for July 13: Please pray with me. Creator God, you make all things and make all things possible. You give us freedom to respond to you and your invitation. Give us the courage to respond to you, to be with you. Turn us from rejecting you for our own ways. Your way is the only way that works. The ways of anger and fear are empty and lead to death. Your ways require us to die daily so that new life can begin – better life. Grant us wisdom, give us grace, show us the way of peace, and teach us forgiveness. Let us fall into your embrace. Amen.
