Focus Scripture – Psalm 31: 15-16 My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me. Make Your face shine upon Your servant; save me for Your mercies’ sake.
Awesome God, we thank you for your mercy. Deliver us from the hands of our enemies. We lift up our brokenness with faith that you will heal us from those things that keep us bound. Especially we pray for:
- People who are hiding from God.
- Children who cannot see their future from here.
- Teachers, role models and mentors for our children.
- Families that have been impacted by senseless violence.
- People who have been hurt by unjust policies.
- People with chronic illness.
- People who speak truth to power.
- Our households and our neighborhoods.
- Governmental leaders and policy makers.
- Pastors and other spiritual leaders.
Great God, you are worthy of honor; you are worthy of praise; and we bless your holy name. Please hear our prayers and answer in the name of Jesus. Amen.
