Prayer for the Week

Circle us, Lord.
Circle us with the light of your presence within this dark world
Enable us to be over comers of fear and temptation
Enable us to be victors over sin and despair
Enable us to become that which you would desire    

Circle us, Lord.
Circle our family within the shelter of your outstretched arms
Protect them in each moment of their daily lives
Protect them in the decisions that they face
Protect their homes and relationships

Circle us, Lord.
Circle this world with the joy of your Salvation
Where there is sickness and disease bring healing
Where there is hunger and despair bring hope
Where there is torture and oppression bring release     

Lord of creation, Lord of Salvation
Circle this world with the light of your presence
