Daily Prayer Focus: Psalm 143:7-8 (NRSV)
Answer me quickly, O Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me, or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit. Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning, for in you I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
Compassionate God, we need you now more than ever before. Do not hide your face from us. We pray for others and ourselves today. We pray especially for governments around the world, people fleeing from political strife, and those who are homeless and hungry. Please hear our prayers and answer. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen
