100 Days of Prayer (s20): Days 36-42

Begin with the prayer below, then go to the prayer for the day.

God of wisdom and mercy, grant us patience to listen; compassion to be open to other views and opinions; generosity to forgive and grace to change. As you taught us to love our dear neighbor, we pray that you give us strength to be healing instruments of unity and reconciliation.

Day 29: Sunday, June 16

We pray for extreme weather and heatwaves, floods, and other disasters to end. May we understand that it is our consumer habits that are disrupting the world’s weather patterns. Let us care for each other by caring for Your creation.

Day 37: Tuesday, June 18

Compassionate God, we pray for dialogue among nation leaders to prevent further violence, destruction, and death of innocent civilians. Guide their hearts and minds to work towards a peaceful world.

Day 38: Wednesday, June 19

God of unity, I pray to collaborate with others to build a nation that is inclusive, respectful, and welcoming. I pray we find opportunities to dialogue that can lead us to overcome division.

Day 39: Thursday, June 20

Spirit of Wisdom, I pray that I am aware of the constant mental “chatter” in my brain, especially when I am listening to another person’s opinion. May I learn to listen to learn so that I can have in-depth and meaningful conversations.

Day 40: Friday, June 21

Life-Giving One, open the hearts of your faithful and touch the hearts of stone so that we are true co-creators with You and all of Creation.

Day 41: Saturday, June 22

Today and every day, may the light of Christ within us shine forth. May we recognize this light in every person and every creature and celebrate the countless gifts of love in everyday living.
