Prayer for Today
Loving Father God, we ask that you would heal our world. Just now people are hurting, some are sick with corona virus, some have lost loved ones and are grieving, some are anxious and scared for their jobs and their future, Some are lonely and worried and sad.
Father of all,- Provide, restore, and heal.
We ask that you would end this time of shaking in our world. Please guide the scientists to find a suitable vaccine.
But we do not want to return to business as usual - we want to return to you, to establish fair systems, and sound practices, built on your laws, and your commitment to deliver all people, especially the poor and oppressed.
Father of all - provide, restore, and guide.
Father God, thank you that you know everyone who is experiencing pain, poverty, loneliness and anxiety today.
Where there is pain - bring your healing.
Where there is need - send your provision.
Where there is loneliness - give your comfort.
Where there is fear - provide your encouragement.
Where there is shame - speak your hope, and the future your have planned.
We pray for new opportunities, fresh starts and fruitful openings.
Please use us to be your hands and feet, and voice and love to those around us.
We ask for your protection of marriages, families and homes.
We pray all these things in the name of your precious Son, Jesus. Amen.
