Prayer for July 26

Prayer for July 26: Please pray with me. God of humility, you know what humility is, far more than we can ever imagine.  For Christians, we believe that you humbled yourself in taking on human form.  Not only that, but you humbled yourself to the point of death – a humiliating death of crucifixion.  And you did that for us.  Help those who struggle with humility and too often give in to their own ego and sense of importance.  Help us to know that we are but small specks that are here one day and gone the next and that we will be forgotten in the ashes of history.  But you will not forget us.  Help us to be humble today and each day.  Amen.

 

Prayer for July 7

Prayer for July 7: Please pray with me.  God of leadership, where do we begin?  Our culture seems to lack leadership – leadership that creates an environment where all can thrive, where there can be peace, where we pursue justice, where we are good stewards, where we treat others with respect.  Give leaders wisdom to know that leadership is best when it seeks the good for as many as possible.  Amen.
