WEEKLY PRAYER GUIDE
June 06, 2021
Let us pray this week to be engaged in one form or another in the pressing causes of our day and time. God will lead is us as we seek guidance for what we can pray and what we can do. Here is one example:
Give us grace, O God, to dare to do the deed which we well know cries to be done. Let us not hesitate because of ease, or the words of men’s mouths, or our own lives. Mighty causes are calling us – the freeing of women, the training of children, the putting down of hate and murder and poverty – all these and more. But they call with voices that mean work and sacrifice and death. Mercifully grant us, O God, the spirit of Esther, that we say: I will go unto the King and if I perish, I perish.
