Prayer for Friday 8-19-2022
Dear God and our Father, if only we have You, we desire nothing more in Heaven or on earth. Body and soul may fail, but You, Oh God, are the strength and comfort of our hearts and You are ours forever, that is Your promise and our assurance. May we live in Your Spirit and may Your light always shine over us. Touch our hearts and help us understand the greatness of what You call each of us to do. Help us and free us again and again so that we are not bound by fear, even when we must pass through intense suffering. For Your hand shall be with us and shall rescue us. Your hand shall bring about good for us and for all the people around us. Our hearts go out to them and we plead for them too, “Lord, send your Savior to all.” In the mighty and redeeming name of Immanuel, Jesus Christ our Lord!
