God of healing and wholeness, we confess our need for you today.
We need your love and your grace. We need hope restored.
We need to be reminded that you work on behalf of those you love, constantly, powerfully, completely.
Forgive us for trying to fix our situations all on our own.
Forgive us for running all different directions and spinning our wheels to find help when true help and healing must be found first in You.
Forgive us for forgetting how much we need you, above everyone and everything else.
Compassionate God, we come to you and bring you the places we are hurting. You see where no one else is able to fully see or understand.
You know the pain we’ve carried. The burdens. The cares.
You know where we need to be set free.
We ask for your healing and grace to cover every broken place.
Every wound. Every heartache.
Hear our prayers for all who grieve.
Hear our prayers for our loved ones in long term care and for families providing support safely distanced.
We pray for those struggling with anxiety, loneliness, mental illness, and loved ones who support them.
Listening God, hear our prayers for our Households of Faith.
All-powerful God, thank you that you are able to do far more than we could ever imagine. Thank you for your Mighty Power that acts on behalf of your children. We reach out to you and know that you are restoring and redeeming every place of difficulty, every battle, for your greater glory.
Thank you that you will never waste our pain and suffering.
We love you. We need you today and everyday in Jesus’ name, Amen.
