Prayer for November 9: Please pray with me. God of rest, today we pray that we would be given rest from the heated and fearful rhetoric of the last two years that we have come to know as a presidential campaign. This is not normal Lord and we know it, yet we are unsure of what to do about it. We are worn down, our society is anxious, our world uncertain. There is much to do. Yet for today, give us rest so that we will be ready to share your peace, joy, mercy, and love with those we come in contact with daily. Amen.
Prayer for August 4: Please pray with me. God of Sabbath, today we ask for rest. We are tired Lord. We are tired of running here and there. We are tired of working long and hard. We are tired of being constantly connected and in the know about everything. We are tired of hearing about every single tragedy that occurs in the world. We are tired of weeping. We are tired of crying out to you. We are tired. Give us rest Lord. Renew us and rejuvenate us with your holy food. Refresh us with your holy word. Touch us and heal us so that we can go back into the world and touch and offer prayers of healing to those around us. Amen.
