Prayer for September 7: Please pray with me. God of truth, come to us. We live in fear-filled and anxious times. These are the times that try us. We feel adrift. Walk on the water out to us. We want you to calm the storm we are entangled in. Yet, how little faith we have Lord. We want life our way, but we miss what it means to follow you. You don’t promise us smooth calm waters. You promise to be with us in the storm of life. We are in the midst of a terrible storm. Keep your promise Lord. Be with us. We need you. Give us direction. Send us out – not complaining, yelling, pointing, scapegoating, etc. But instead send us out to live as a follower of you. Send us out to the light that shines in the darkness. Give us the courage to confess our sin so that you can radically reorient us towards you. Give us the strength to live as a follower of you. Amen.
