Prayer for March 21: Please pray with me. God of the seasons, today we thank you for the change in the seasons from Winter to Spring. As Spring dawns upon us, open our eyes to see the new life that will sprout forth. Open our hearts to the new life you give us. And open our arms to embrace those around us who remain in the dead of winter in their lives. Amen.
Prayer for September 1: Please pray with me. God of the seasons, today we ask for your blessings as we enter a new season – fall. The calendar may not say fall, but Lord we know that when September comes, it is fall. The temperatures will drop, our busy schedules pick up, we see a change in the colors of nature begin to happen. As we enter this new season, change our hearts as you change nature. Soften our hearts to care for those in need, give us caring hearts. Ease our ears that we may hear the concerns of those that we classify as our enemy. Feed us with your word and meal so that we may feed others with true food – your love, peace, joy, and kindness. Amen.
