Prayer – hope in what seems hopeless

Life seems cheap at the moment. There is coronavirus, racism and now explosions. Unemployment is rising, people are still being expolited and there seems little joy in this world.

Dear Jesus
You are our hope.
You are our hope when all seems hopeless.
Your name is power and freedom,
Let people turn there eyes to you.

We pray for strength for all emergency service workers today.
Comfort the broken hearted,
Heal the sick and injured,
Bring peace to the angry,
Forgiveness to the bitter.

Your name is power and nothing is impossible for you Jesus.
Show the world your impossibleness today and let all the glory go to you.

Amen

A prayer to start the day.

Dear Jesus,
We thank you that you never leave us alone.
We thank you that your Holy Spirit is with us always.
Please take away everything within us that is not from you.
May the fruit of the spirit be abundant in us and grow with each minute.
Please let us be strong in you today and may we not grow faint.
As your power in us grows stronger, may we become more sensitive to you.
Pour out your wisdom and discernment,
Let us be your beacons of light.
Help us to stand firm and strong on you, our rock.
Lord Jesus, you have already won the war, let us live in your victory and freedom today and everyday.
Amen
