Day 304: Male and Female (2331-2336)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and we thank you. I thank you for bringing us to this day. Thank you for bringing us to this moment. Thank you for bringing us to this sixth of your Commandments. We ask that you please open our hearts, open our minds to be able to accept, to receive your teaching, to receive your commands, to receive your guidance, and to receive the wisdom of what it is not just to be human, but to be male and female. What it is to have a body and to live in that body. Lord God, we ask you to please pay attention to our prayers. Pay heed to our prayers. Lord God, meet us especially in places of woundedness and places of where we have failed, in places where we need your grace, whether that be your grace of mercy and forgiveness, or your grace of just strengthening, encouragement. Hope in the midst of encouragement. Lord God, meet every person who is listening to these words right now. Meet them with your grace, and give them yourself. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
