The CWG Prayer Chain Post is a weekly post for members to include their special intentions by adding a comment.
First Kings 19:4-8
He himself went on into the desert, a day’s journey, and sitting under a furze bush wished he were dead. ‘Yahweh,’ he said, ‘I have had enough. Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.’ Then he lay down and went to sleep. Then all of a sudden an angel touched him and said, ‘Get up and eat.’ He looked round, and there at his head was a scone baked on hot stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. But the angel of Yahweh came back a second time and touched him and said, ‘Get up and eat, or the journey will be too long for you.’ So he got up and ate and drank, and strengthened by that food he walked for forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, God’s mountain.
The power of prayer and the power of people praying.
AUGUST INTENTION PRAYER
BLESSED ARE YOU, LORD OUR GOD, WHO WATCHES OVER US IN TIMES OF TRIAL AND DANGER.
Thanksgiving fills our hearts, as we rejoice in You, our Lord and Holy Protector.
We who live in the midst of storm and sickness, of war and danger, who are daily exposed to evil of every sort, rejoice in Your constant and parental love for us.
Surrounded by darkness and the shadow of fear, we do not falter, for we trust that Your constant care cradles us and keeps us safe.
With angelic attention, You watch over our home and each of our bodily temples.
Your holy spirits surround us and, in winged wonder, call us to prayer and to confidence.
Guard us in this time of danger, as Your Holy Presence fills the darkness of this moment with the splendor of Your shelter.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, who watches over us in times of trial and danger.
-Father Edward Hays, from Prayers For The Domestic Church, A Handbook For Worship In The Home
