Focus Scripture: Psalm 27: 9-10 Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.
Gracious God, we have faith that you will take care of us in times of trouble. You will never leave us lost and alone. We pray for others and ourselves; in particular, we pray for people who feel they have been abandoned, people seeking the truth, people who have been rejected, and those mourning the loss of loved ones. We know you to be a God who answers prayer. Bless us all in the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
