Daily Prayers for These Times

The prayer for Friday, July 31 is the final one of this series. We hope you have found this ministry meaningful over these past few months. Please know we look forward to offering wonderful new prayer opportunities this fall. Further updates coming soon to prumc.org!

Gracious God
    We thank you for the many ways you are guiding our steps in these challenging and difficult days. Your grace is the gift that is enabling us to live and love. Each day brings new challenges that stretch our capacity. We wonder whether we are up to the challenge, and we question whether we have within us what is required of us.
    Lord
      We thank you for your church, founded upon your Word, that challenges us to do more than sing and pray, but go out and work as though the very answer to our prayers depended on us and not upon you. Help us to realize that humanity was created to shine like the stars and live on through all eternity...
