August Prayer of the Month

'Better Than Life'

Psalm 63

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.

Decisions Prayer

God, caring Father and our Creator, we ask you to help us make good decisions in our lives.  As we grow and face challenges, be with us in the choices we make.  Help us to know that what we do affects our lives and the lives of others.  Give us the courage and the strength to do what is right even when it is difficult.  We ask this through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Father of us all, help us to remember

that you created each person in your image and likeness.

May we walk in justice all the days of our lives. Amen
