Prayer for September 8

Prayer for September 8: Please pray with me. God who fixes things, oh how badly we just want you to fix everything and make it all right God.  Oh how we think we know better than you when it comes to seeing how messed up things are.  Oh how limited our vision is.  Today we ask for eyes that might see you in the hiddenness of creation, in the messes, in the chaos, in the pain and suffering.  Make us instruments of your mission to restore all of creation and humanity into a right relationship with you God.  Amen.

Prayer for August 24

Prayer for August 24: Please pray with me. Hidden God, you walk with us in our times of trouble. When we think you have abandoned us and when you feel distant from us, open our eyes to see you where you are hidden – in the chaos, the pain, the poverty.  You are there, right beside us in ways that we can never imagine.  In your hiddenness, you reveal yourself.  Give us the strength to trust in you regardless.  Amen.
