Prayer for September 8: Please pray with me. God who fixes things, oh how badly we just want you to fix everything and make it all right God. Oh how we think we know better than you when it comes to seeing how messed up things are. Oh how limited our vision is. Today we ask for eyes that might see you in the hiddenness of creation, in the messes, in the chaos, in the pain and suffering. Make us instruments of your mission to restore all of creation and humanity into a right relationship with you God. Amen.
Prayer for July 5: Please pray with me. Holy God, today we pray for vision. Help us with our unbelief. Help us to believe that you are active in the world, so that we can see it. We struggle with our belief at times God because we are bombarded with images that proclaim a different message. Give us vision to see, a voice to speak, and strength to live out the Good News that you have already touched our own lives and the world as your kingdom continues to unfold right before our eyes. Amen.
Prayer for June 21: Please pray with me. God of hope, today we pray that you would give people vision to see what could be in this world.

A world that lives in your light. Help us to see that world around us as you transform the world and us. Help us to live into that world and share the vision with those around us. Amen.
