Prayer for July 20: Please pray with me. God of forgiveness, we are desperate for your forgiveness. The world is merciless and unforgiving. It slams us for our mistakes and failings. It steps on us for our weaknesses. It declares that only the strong survive. That the weak are to perish. And many buy this line of thinking. The only problem is that in the end, we are all the weak. And so we all suffer the consequence. But you offer a different way – a way of forgiveness, of mercy, of grace. We are weak. We are sinners. We are broken. Be our strength. Give us the forgiveness we need. And send us out to forgive others. Amen.
