Prayer for July 25: Please pray with me. God who is special and unique, we come to you and ask that you open our eyes, our ears, and our hearts to your special way of life and living. All the human-made ideologies, idols, and false gods are not special in any way. Humanity uses them as validation for the violent nature that we possess – validation for war, control, violence, dehumanization, demean people, and more. These things are not from you. Far from it. You are a God of life, who brings life – even bringing life from that which was dead. Your way is special. Give us the strength to walk in your ways and along your paths. Amen.
