Focus Scripture: Psalm 127:1-2 Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
God our Protector, we seek you in our times of need and bless you for working things out even as we sleep. We lift up our cares to you today. We pray especially for:
- Abundant life through Jesus Christ.
- Comfort for those who mourn.
- Courage in our dark valleys.
- Deliverance from those things that keep us bound.
- Healing for the sick.
God our Deliverer, we lay our burdens on your altar. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
