Focus Scripture: Psalm 27:1-3
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
to eat up my flesh,
my enemies and foes,
they stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
my heart shall not fear;
though war may rise against me,
in this I will be confident.
God of Mercy, we praise you because you are worthy of praise. We lift up our cares today. We pray especially for:
- People who are mourning the loss of a loved one
- Courage for those who are fearful
- Healing for those who are sick and cannot get well
- People who are overworked and overwhelmed
- Those who are lonely and lost
- People who feel unappreciated
- People who are weary
- People who have been wounded by racism and other forms of bigotry
- People in prisons
- People in hospitals, hospice centers, and nursing homes
O God, we pray for patience as we wait on you to perform your will. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
