Prayer for August 7: Please pray with me. God of the extra ordinary, trample the routineness of our lives – the mediocre, the routine. Rouse us from our sleepy routines in which we just travel through life without living it. Throw us off course with encounters that smash out lists of things to do. Encounter us in ways that impact our lives in real ways and cause us to question everything. Open our eyes and hearts to hearing your message so that our lives are changed. Amen.
