A prayer in times of fear and anxiety
Almighty and merciful God, you are the only source of health and healing; you alone can bring calmness and peace. Grant to us, your children, an awareness of your presence and strong confidence in you. In our pain, our weariness, and our anxiety, surround us with your care, protect us by your loving might, and permit us once more to enjoy health and strength and peace; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
A prayer of gratitude
Gracious and generous God, we thank you for your goodness to us and to all that you have made. We praise you for your creation and preservation, for keeping us and all things in your care, and for all the blessings of life. Give us such an awareness of your mercies that with thankful hearts we praise you, not only with our lips but in our lives, by giving ourselves to your service and by living in your gifts of holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be all worship and praise, now and forever.
A prayer for family and friends
Loving God, we pray for our family and friends and the challenges they are facing. Even if they don’t say it, we know they are struggling with the burdens they carry. Help us to trust in your abundance and mercy. God, may your presence dwell in their hearts. At times when their spirits fall deep, may they witness the shining hope only your grace can provide. Teach them to never distance themselves from you, for you are our protection and light.
