The Prayer for the Week of September 10, 2023

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come before you today with hearts filled with gratitude for the gift of life, a fragile and fleeting beauty, much like the cicada's song on that morning. As we reflect on the cicada's passing, a solitary witness to its final moments, we are reminded of the unexpected shifts in life, much like the events of 9/11 that shook the world.

Lord, we pray for the strength to cherish every moment, to live with purpose, and to find solace in Your unwavering grace. Just as I was the sole mourner for that cicada, help us remember that even in our loneliest moments, You are with us, embracing us in Your love.

In times of fragility and change, grant us the wisdom to stand firm in Your grace, knowing that Your presence is our constant companion. May the lessons from nature and history guide us to appreciate the beauty of each day and to find hope in the face of life's uncertainties.

We thank You for the cicada's song, for 9/11's reminders, and for the boundless grace that sustains us. In 

Your name, we pray.
