Prayer of the day

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 potential.

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.

Compassionate God,
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)
