Prayer for August 8

Prayer for August 8: Please pray with me.  God of faithfulness, today we come to you to seek wisdom.  Your ways are not our ways.  Often we look outward shows of strength and might.  We long to follow leaders who can destroy enemies.  We want leaders who live by the ends justifying the means.  We believe that the strong survive.  This is the mantra of humanity throughout history.  Yet, it has led to war, violence, death, and destruction.  Why do we keep repeating the same mistakes?  Why do we ignore your ways?  Turn us towards you Lord and your ways.  Save us from ourselves. Amen.
