Prayer for October 23: Please pray with me. God who frees us from bondage, we plead with you – we need you to set us free. We are in bondage to sin. We are in bondage to brokenness. We are addicted to these things. We cannot set ourselves free from this desire, this addiction. We thrive on our bondage to sin – or so we think. We wear the chains of this bondage as if it were jewelry. Yet it is a chain that drags us down. We wear an array of chains that hold us in bondage – sin, fear, anger, anxiety, power, selfishness, and our idols. Break us free from these chains. We can’t do it ourselves. Set us free so that once free we may go and accompany other in their bondage, waiting with them for you to set them free also Lord. Amen.
