Prayer for September 21: Please pray with me. God of blessing, we open ourselves to receive your blessing. So often it seems that we close our selves off to your blessing. We think we don’t need your blessing. We think we have our acts together and are above receiving your blessing. But if we are truthful, we desperately need your blessing. We are broken. We are sinful. We are empty. Bless us. Take our shields down and allow your blessing to come through to us. We need it. Amen.
