Focus Scripture: Psalm 42:1-3 As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him? Day and night I have only tears for food, while my enemies continually taunt me, saying, “Where is this God of yours?”
Lord God, we cast our cares on you because you care for us. We pray especially for:
- People living in poverty.
- People who work for the public good.
- Those who are ridiculed.
- Victims of gang violence.
- Those who have been betrayed by someone they loved.
We lay our burdens on your altar. Please hear our prayers and answer. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
