Prayer

 

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.”  Lamentations 3:22

 

Father God, we pray for the unseen in our community: for those suffering from physical or mental illness; for those who are lonely and isolated; and for those who suffer abuse which they dare not share with others.  Thank you for your compassion, and grant that we may see the needs of others, and be your help for them.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
