Prayer for Today
Lord of this Cornwall, we bring you its pain,
The jobs lost and poverty, loneliness, rain.
Our fears for the future, the cares of this day,
Protect us, stand with us and save us, we pray.
Lord of all races, all colours of skin,
Please help us fight racism, help us begin
To see how our prejudice colours the way
We treat friends and neighbours at the end of the day.
Lord of our whole lives, we come now to you,
We’re powerless defeated, till you make us new.
Then powered by your spirit, we go on once more
With news of your wholeness, good news for us all.
