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.
