Prayer for July 11: Please pray with me. God who listens, hear us. Then open our hearts to hear what you are telling us in response. You are a God who listens to us. We hear story after story in your Scripture of people calling out to you and you listening and responding. Sometimes it is not on our preferred schedule. And that can be frustrating. But that is a reminder that we are not in charge. But the mere fact that the creator of the universe listens to creation is amazing. Thank you for listening to us. For having patience with us. For forgiving us. Help us to be more like you in this. Amen.
