Prayer

Dear Lord, we lift to You our concern for people who are more likely than others to become severely ill from COVID-19 — the elderly and people with chronic health conditions. Protect them from harm and be their comfort in this time of uncertainty and, for many, preventive isolation from loved ones.  Amen

Today’s Daily Prayer

a red leaf with dew on itRighteous Father, though the world does not know You, I know You, and they know that You have sent me. I have made You known to them, and will continue to make You known in order that the love You have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them. John 17:25–26, NIV

Lord our God, our Father, give us your Spirit, we pray, for You have ruled over us at all times and loved us with a love that guides and leads us, that helps us go forward in body and soul. Reveal your hand. Grant that we undertake nothing in human strength; may everything come from You for each one whose heart holds true to You and who does the work intended for him. Then everything we do on earth can be a service to You. Protect us through your great goodness and faithfulness, which have been with us to this day and will go with us into the future. Amen.

TODAY’S DAILY PRAYER

People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” Mark 7:37, NIV

Lord our God, you fill heaven and earth with your Spirit and allow us to share in your gifts. We thank You for all You have given us, for all You are giving and will give. We are poor and needy; all people are poor and needy in spite of their striving, longing, and seeking. Only You, through your Spirit, can awaken something in us to help us go toward your goal. Keep us from being caught up in what men do. The greatest help for our hearts is what You do, and each of us can tell something about it. Each of us has received help beyond anything we had hoped or thought of. How much You have done for us! How much You are doing for the nations! Yes, we thank You for this present time. Although our lives often seem hopeless and full of sorrow, your powers are still living among men, working for their good and awaking them to new life. The time will surely come when our hearts will be released from their hunger and we can be filled with the life from above, which You give us in Jesus Christ. Amen.

TODAY’S DAILY PRAYER

Those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. “I, even I, am he who comforts You.” Isaiah 51:11–12a, NIV

Lord our God, we thank You for the trust You have put into our hearts. We thank You for all the signs of your goodness that comfort us when we are in great need and when many deaths take place around us and touch each of us. We thank You for comforting us, for always giving us fresh courage wherever we may be, and for giving us hope for other people, who also struggle hard to find what is good. O Lord God, bless our world with power from on high, with your gifts that bring good to many people. Bless our world. Save it from sin, from ruin, from every kind of despair. Give your blessing, O Lord our God! As You bless us, so bless all the world, to the glory of your name. Amen.

Today’s Daily Prayer

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10, RSV

Lord our God, grant that we may find the power of your Spirit so that we may live on a higher level, no longer controlled by our lower natures but strengthened to take up the battle of life. May we be children of the Spirit and may we walk in the Spirit. Guard us against carelessness and keep us joyful and courageous. Help us and counsel us on all our ways so that we may honor You and testify that You are our God, our true help. Amen.

Today’s Daily Prayer

At that time I will answer the prayers of my people Israel. I will make rain fall on the earth, and the earth will produce grain and grapes and olives. I will establish my people in the land and make them prosper. I will show love to those who were called “Unloved,” and to those who were called “Not-My-People” I will say, “You are my people,” and they will answer, “You are our God.” Hosea 2:21–23, TEV
