Focus Scripture: 1 John 5:14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.
Sustaining God, we thank you for this new day. We thank you for life, and we praise you because we are marvelously made in your image.
We lift up our concerns and our brokenness for your healing touch. We pray especially for:
- Comfort for those who mourn.
- People who have been bullied.
- Those who have been cast aside by society.
- Political leaders responsible for making decisions for your people.
- Spiritual leaders responsible for attending to the souls of your people.
- Those who are sad and lonely.
- Those who are sick.
- People who are homeless and helpless.
- Volunteers who have given their time to help others in need.
- Those who are persecuted in your name.
Loving God, help us walk in a way that pleases you today. Please hear our prayers and answer. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy on your world. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
