Prayer for hope from hurt

“I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak, but the sleek and the strong I will destroy. I will shepherd the flock with justice.”
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭34‬:‭16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Let us pray.

Lord of all hope may You shine Your grace upon us so that we will not lose sight of Your in our emptiness.
Our hearts and minds are tired and need renewal and rest.
The struggles of others, the manipulations and fears flowing in fresh waters in the society around us is wearing the faithful thin.
Strivings to be honour grow tired in what seems like a waste land of everyday monotony.
Weariness and anxiety overflow into the place that You Lord of made for Yourself in our hearts.
Wash over us with Your life giving Spirit that we may pause and breathe in the freshness of Your faithfulness,
That we might know once again the warm embrace of Your love for us,
That the peace that You have promised would have new life in our tired, stress filled bodies.
We ask for the water of life to quench our thirsty souls so that we might live and love those around us and most of all to love You as we loved You before.
Lord of hope fill us and renew us, breathe Your breath of live into our lives once again.
We pray this in the Holy name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
