Prayer for October 25: Please pray with me. God of grace, God of mercy, have mercy on us. Humanity is inclined towards violence. But why? Why do we insist on violent ways, violent words, violent attitudes? Change our hearts – soften them. You call us to love our enemies, not kill them. That isn’t easy. But it is possible in following you Lord. We can’t do that on our own. Walk with us. Calm us. Dispel the anxiety, fear, and anger within us. Amen.
