Prayer for September 3: Please pray with me. God who pushes forward, give us the courage to keep moving forward. We face bad odds in terms of numbers. We face loud mouths and hard hearts. We face obstacles. We face those who want nothing better than to see us fail. In spite of that, we know the real odds. Give us the energy we need to push forward. Give us ears to hear and focus on what is really important. Give us eyes to see the goal. Give us the determination to press forward. Give us what we need to live as disciples. Amen.
