Prayer of the day
31 January 2015
Each day and each night, may the wisdom of the
Wonderful Counsellor guide us. May the strength of the Mighty
God defend us. May the love of the Everlasting Father enfold
us and may the blessing of the Prince of Peace rest upon us;
now and always. Amen.
Based on Isaiah of Jerusalem (eighth century BC)
Loving God of all the world,
we hold before you all nations, their needs and their
God, who reigns over governments,
bring justice where injustice rules.
God, who carries a weary world without growing weak,
give strength to the struggling and hope to the hopeless.
Creative God, who dreamed up our world,
grant vision and insight to those with a heart to change
things for the better.
heal what is hurting and restore what has been broken.
With grateful hearts we thank our loving God,
whose compassion never ceases,
whose love for us never runs dry and
whose fight against injustice never relents. Amen.
Rebecca Branch, All We Can (formerly MRDF)
