Praying

Scripture Resource passage: Matthew 6:19-13 NIV

Our Father, your name is holy. We acknowledge you are sovereign. Yours is the Name we thank for life itself and it is to you we turn in these hours. Please do not abandon us to the grave for no one learns of you or praises you from that abode.

Almighty God, the whole earth cries out to you. The ones who know your name and those who have regarded you as a stranger—each are calling out.

We look to your Spirit’s presence in these hours. We seek solace and a path to overcome a killer who silently walks among us. 

 “‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
 on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
 as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
 but deliver us from the evil one.’”

In the Name of Christ, we pray. Amen.
