Focus Scripture: 1 Peter 5:10 And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.
Compassionate God, we thank you for your unfailing love, for our hope is in you alone. Although we are uncertain of the future, we know who holds the future, and we thank you for your grace. Thank you for intervening in impossible situations, for lifting up the downtrodden, and for healing our brokenness. Today, we pray especially for victims of violence, people in all manner of prisons, newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers, and people who are searching for answers. We have faith that after we have suffered a little while, Jesus will restore, support, and strengthen us. Thank you in advance for prayers answered and hope renewed. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
