Prayer for Today

Risen Lord,

We come to you with hearts troubled by the situation in our world today.  Help us to find comfort in the knowledge that you are with us always for you are our hope.

When life is like walking through deep waters, you are with us. We will never have to sink beneath the waves.

When life is like a fire, burning all around us, you are with us. We will never be consumed by the flames.

When the fear of loneliness is looming, then we remember that you are by our side.

We remember that we are all precious in your eyes. You have called us by name, and we are yours.

You remind us, “Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by your name. You are mine.”

Amen
