Psalm 43:1-5

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space. We feel downcast, disturbed. Our sorrow runs deep. Our fears escape their chains. They have broken free to torment us as they please. But you, LORD, remain our stronghold. You are our fortress in times of trouble.

Loving God, some of us feel far away from you, and even abandoned you. Hear our cry and our longing for you. We look for your faithfulness, hope, and light. We remember your goodness and the community of believers you have given us to support and encourage us. Joining in with others to worship you, lifts the heaviness of our hearts.

I run to your waiting arms today, Loving Saviour, and thank you for…

Though our sorrow may last in the darkness, you have promised that your joy comes in the morning. Though we lose hope and our strength leaves us, you are our joy and strength when we are weak. Be our candle in the darkness. Come quickly, LORD, to our aid. Fill us with hope once again.

With joy we praise you!
