Prayer for September 23: Please pray with me. God who is and was and will be, today we pray that you remind us that you work in unexpected ways. We have seen you work in the past – we give you thanksgiving for that. Loosen us from the binding of the past though.

You accompany us in the present and have promised to continue to walk with us in the future. May we trust that you will do as you say, just as you have always done. Amen.
