Prayer for September 16, 2020: Please pray with me. God of forgiveness, thank you. In our confession, we speak words that scare us – that we are in bondage to sin and cannot free ourselves. Humans don’t like this – we want to believe we can free ourselves. But we can’t. Thank you for freeing us. Thank you for taking that stress away. Thank you for the sabbath you give us from trying to break free on our own. Free us so we can hear your good news. Free us so we can be in community together. Free us so we can serve. Free us. Amen.
