Monthly Prayer

When we find ourselves in a spiritual rut

and the busyness of life has taken over

Lord, we turn to you

When our energies run dry

and even Church is overwhelming

Lord, we turn to you

When deadlines and daunting tasks are upon us

and the days ahead are frightening

Lord, we turn to you

We ask, how do we pray, Lord?

And you answer us, saying:

Confess your sins to each other,

pray for one another,

even when hardships abound, and prayer falls silent

Earnest prayer I will hear,

Elijah called out, and I listened.

Yes, brothers and sisters, prayer has great power!

Lord, we turn to you,

and we praise your holy name.
