Focus Scripture – John 8: 58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Eternal God, we thank you for Jesus, the Great I Am! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We ask blessings for others and ourselves, especially:
- Families victimized by senseless violence.
- Those who are struggling to survive.
- Justice workers and peacemakers.
- Those who have been cast aside by society.
- Children who are confused.
- People with hateful hearts.
- People in nursing homes, hospitals, and hospice care.
- People in need of a new perspective.
- Those who have lost their joy.
- People who are overwhelmed.
God of all mercy, please hear our prayers and answer. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy on your world. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
