Saturday 11 – Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
We pray, today, for those who might wish for less time: – those who are worried about what might happen; – those who are in despair; – those who suffer hours of pain and illness; – those who are in prison or being tortured; – those who wish to die. On all these people, Lord, we ask your blessing.
Friday 10 – John 8:12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Lord God, Creator of light, at the rising of your sun each morning let the greatest of all lights – your love – rise, like the sun, within our hearts today. We are ready to accept that light and all that goes with it from this day forth.
