Focus Scripture: Psalm 68:1-3 Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered; let those who hate him flee before him. 2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melts before the fire, let the wicked perish before God. 3 But let the righteous be joyful; let them exult before God; let them be jubilant with joy.
Almighty God, all power belongs to you, and we bless your Holy Name. You rise up in our situations with your powerful hand. You scatter our enemies and make the wicked flee from your presence. We are grateful for all the ways you have shown yourself in our times of trouble during this pandemic.
We pray for others and ourselves today. We pray especially for people who are downtrodden, people who have been victimized by injustice, and those who feel lost and alone. We praise you for standing beside us and never leaving us alone. You are worthy, O God, and we bless your Holy Name. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
