Prayer for August 11, 2021: Please pray with me. God who sees us through the struggles of life, we call to you. We want you to take away our struggles. To make life easier. Maybe even to make it comfortable. But that is not what life is about. Life is messy and complex. It is full of struggle. Change us and open our eyes to seeing the world and ourselves differently. Open us to seeing the struggle as a blessing and way of growth. A way to know that we are alive. Amen.
Call to action: what are the struggles you have? Take time today to see what the blessings are in the midst of these struggles. How are they helping you to grow? How are they inviting you to let go of trying to be in control? What are they moving you towards?
