Focus Scripture: 1 Peter 5:10 In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
Loving God, thank you for calling us to share in your eternal glory. Fortify our hope. Restore, support, and strengthen us, we pray. We lift up our brokenness to you and rely on your love to heal and sustain us. We stand on your promises today and with grateful hearts, we claim in the name of Jesus all you have declared for us in your Holy Word. We lay our burdens on your altar. We cast our cares on you because you care for us. Please hear our prayers and answer. Have mercy on your people. Have mercy in your world. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
