Prayer for December 17, 2020: Please pray with me. God of grace, we need what you give to us. We are in desperate need of your grace. Help us when we deal with demanding people who are never satisfied. Help us to see the image of God in them. Protect us from the harm that they can inflict too. Remind these people that your ways are not unsatisfied demands, but loving invitations. And help us to know when to step away from these folks when we are in danger of abuse of any type. We lift abusive people up in prayer that the bondage of their abuse may end for others and especially for themselves. Amen.
