Intercessions for Work

O God, my refuge and my strength. Help me to remember this day that nothing can put me outside of your love and care for me, and help this fact be enough for me. This I ask in Jesus’ name. Amen

Pause for thought

One of the psalms given for Morning Prayer on Monday of this week is Ps. 46 which begins “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble”, and ends with the verse, “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth”

Let us be still for a moment and ponder the implication of this verse.

Prayer for the Day

Lord, we thank you for the book of Psalms and as we think about this psalm in particular we pray that you will help us to be still in your presence and to daily give back to you the world which we have so dreadfully hurt. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
