Prayer for Wednesday
Lord our God, we thank You for ruling us with Your shepherd’s staff so that again and again we can be refreshed and can delight in what You are doing for us and through us. We thank You that we can have eager, joyful faith even when troubles come, looking again and again to the good You give to each of us. We are thankful and want to be thankful always. Be a mighty Lord over all the peoples, we pray, and protect our countries. Show your sovereignty by guarding the flock close beside You and by pouring out Your grace to give life to the dying and resurrection to those who have died. O Lord God, hear and bless us in Your most precious grace. May Your will always be done amongst us as it is in Your Heavenly Kingdom, so that Your Kingdom may break in upon us and everything may come right, according to Your great purpose. In the name of the King of kings and our Lord of lords, Jesus Christ, hear our pleas.
