Prayer for today

Lucy, who often writes Sunday intercessions for our Sunday worship at St George’s, has kindly offered to provide a special Sunday prayer for us all every week during this period of isolation. The first one comes from an order of service for evening prayer from the Northumbria Community (www.northumbriacommunity.org).

Lord, You have always given
bread for the coming day
and though I am poor,
today I believe. 

Lord, You have always given
strength for the coming day
and though I am weak,
today I believe.  

Lord, You have always given
peace for the coming day
and though of anxious heart
today I believe.

Lord, You have always kept
me safe in trials;
and now, tried as I am
today, I believe. 

Lord You have always marked
the road for the coming day
and though it may be hidden
today I believe. 

Lord, You have always lightened
this darkness of mine;
and though the night is here,
today I believe. 

Lord, You have always spoken
when the time was ripe
and though you be silent now,
today, I believe.
