Today’s Prayer

And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14

Answered Prayers

oh Lord

I ask that you consider those

who have petitioned you in prayer

hear the prayers of the desperate,

the poor, the hopeless

grant mercy to the dying

and healing to the sick

clemency to the imprisoned

compassion to the lonely

bring justice where it is sought

wisdom to those who study

and charity where it is needed

for I know that you

have not abandoned your children

you have rescued us from the grave

and promised that whatever we seek in your name

you will provide

let not the folly of this world

divert us from devotion to you

may prayer

draw us nearer to you

and give us a greater understanding of your love

amen
