Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my help and my God. Psalms 42:11 NRSV
Dear God, the Father of all, reveal in us the humility, courage, discernment, and love to bring hope and healing to all in need during this unsettled time. Although at times we feel despair and sadness, we hold onto our hope in you, oh God, and continually praise you for your love and care. Amen.
Dr. Susan Humble, Christian Science Church
Thank you for participating in our weekly invitation to prayer. We call on you now to join us in “40 Days of Prayer to Transform: A Journey to Newness.” Beginning December 12 and moving daily through January 20, members of the National Council of Churches and all communion partners will join in praying for hope, unity, and healing. During this Advent/Christmas season and into the New Year we put our hope in the ability and desire of God, through Jesus Christ, to heal and transform hearts and minds. We look for the Holy Spirit to breathe God’s newness into individual lives, faith communities, the soul of our nation, indeed, the whole world.
