The CWG Prayer Chain Post is a weekly post for members to include their special intentions by adding a comment.
Psalms 86: 1-10 (Prayer Of David)
Listen to me, Yahweh, answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard me, for I am faithful, save your servant who relies on you. You are my God,take pity on me, Lord, for to you I cry all the day. Fill your servant’s heart with joy, Lord, for to you I raise up my heart. Lord, you are kind and forgiving, rich in faithful love for all who call upon you. Yahweh, hear my prayer, listen to the sound of my pleading. In my day of distress I call upon you, because you answer me, Lord;among the gods there is none to compare with you, no great deeds to compare with yours. All nations will come and adore you, Lord, and give glory to your name. For you are great and do marvellous deeds, you, God, and none other.
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
