Look for this prayer each week. Take time to pray it each day and know that your church family is saying this prayer to
God, on this day which you've given me, I lift my voice with thanksgiving and praise for the glorious things you have done. Your creation is beautiful as the season begins to change from Summer to Autumn. The season ushers in a new growth of flowers, a changing of the color of the leaves and the delightful tastes of a fruit and vegetable harvest. The change comes every year and it's so refreshing. I recognize, however, that there are some changes happening in the personal lives of some people that are not as welcome as the change of the season. I lift those individuals to you now in prayer. Help them...heal them as they navigate the uncertainties and pain that change can bring. Likewise, I ask for your wisdom should I have the opportunity to help those struggling with change. I trust your Spirit's empowerment to guide me in such efforts to be your helping presence to others. And should I find myself in my own struggle with change, I call upon you to help me. For you are my fortress and safe haven, and I know I can count on you for all my needs. This is my prayer on this blessed day. Amen.
