*Silent Prayer & Invocation (Praying the Scriptures)
Help us to sort the stuff in our lives, O Lord. Some to keep, some to recycle, some to throw in the garbage can - - that is something we need to do each day. Show us the things that hinder us from sharing your love with others. Cast your light on thoughts and acts, which grieve your Holy Spirit. Loosen our grip on behaviors that are contrary to your will. Let us live in the ways of the One who has taught us to pray…
