Judges 16:23-31

Loving Divine Family,

Our choices and selfish ambition sometimes land us in temples of those who oppress us. We may be tempted to lash out in revenge for how we are treated. But praise be to you, for you are with us even in these places; you surround us in your sacred prayer space when we cry out to you.

Yahweh, thank you for never leaving or abandoning us, even when we do our own thing and do not live out the potential you placed within us. Thank you for remembering us and hearing our cry for help. May our strength come from you. May our lives be a light to others, so they may praise you.

I cry out to you for mercy today, Loving Saviour, and thank you for…

Let all you do in our lives be for your sake, O LORD. When you answer our prayers, let others see and believe that you are our God. When we pass from this world, carry us on the shoulders of our community and the peace of Life-giving Spirit to rest in our final destination.

With joy we praise you!
