Prayer for July 31

Prayer for July 31: Please pray with me.  God who encounters us, you come to us over and over again.  You do no rest from pursuing us.  You encounter us.  You do not relent.  That is because you understand that an encounter with you changes our lives.  You encounter us and change us in the encounter.  Help us to do the same with those around us.  Change us from our focus on ourselves to seeing the concerns of those around us.  Change us from the inward focus on ourselves to seeing our interconnectedness with others.  Change us from seeing ourselves as completely separate from others to identifying with those around us – especially those that are trapped in poverty, homelessness, human trafficking, domestic violence.  Amen.
