Focus Scripture: Psalm 30:3-5
3 O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave;
you have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4 Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
God, who turns mourning into dancing, we praise you today. We lift up our burdens for your healing touch. We pray especially for:
- People who are traveling through dark valleys
- People who are sick
- Those who are undergoing surgery today
- People who are persecuted because of their faith
- Those who feel unloved
- People who are in despair
- Those who are oppressed and can see no way out
O God, we stand on your promises today. Have mercy on your people; have mercy on your world. In all things we give you the glory. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
