Pray for India on Sunday, August 16, 2009

Lectionary Text and Prayers for: India, John 6:51-58; Psalm 111

Compassionate God of love and hope today we pause and give time in prayer for your creation.  With grateful hearts we embrace this moment in this day knowing you are always present with us.  You know how we are made and today as we lift into your light of wholeness the Henry family.  It is your suffering along side that brings strength during this time of change in their lives.  Send encouragers as they concentrate on the hope that brings renewal.   In the fragmentation may they sense your light in this darkness and know there is an end to the pain because of the hope they have in your sustaining presence.  God the source of grace hear our pray. Amen

(Prayer by Sharon Mann)
