Prayer for October 9: Please pray with me. God who is, who was, and who is to come, you are the all in all. We praise you and thank you for the gift of life. It is you that we owe our worship and praise to. Yet, we slip. We try to substitute in false gods – often things made in our own image and to our liking. These never work out. Forgive us when we stray from you. Turn us to hear you. Encounter us. Open us to receive your love and mercy. Amen.
