Gracious God, you are with us in all of our moments. In them we experience the range of hope and despair; joy and grief; confusion and clarity; community and loneliness; faithfulness and sinfulness; trust and uncertainty. Give us the confidence to come before you in prayer in trust and transparency, lead us to avenues of connection with you that bring us closer to you and bring us closer to your will for us. In your name we pray. Amen.
This prayer is excerpted from the Bible study “Let us pray” by Anna Madsen in the July/August 2018 issue of Gather magazine. Today we observe Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
