Prayer for June 9: Please pray with me. God who transforms and restores, today we ask for the strength to let your healing message of grace, love and forgiveness transform our lives in a radical way. Break through the barriers that we create, the walls we put up, the defenses we claim. Help us to know that this message is meant for each one of us because we all need it, desperately. Help us to see that when we are judgemental, your message of grace is there for us. Help us to see that when we desire to be right and correct others, your message of love is there for us. Help us to see that when we act like Pharisees, you message of forgiveness is there for us. Amen.
