Prayer for today

Lucy has written this week’s prayer herself. It’s based on lines taken from different psalms that she has been reading during lockdown.

Lord of heaven and earth 
Creator of all, seen and unseen
past, present and yet to come
We wait for you
In silence
Wait for your Holy Spirit 
to fill the dark corners of our hearts 
and lighten the darkness of our world. 

Lord, your promise of salvation 
is always with us
unchanged down the centuries, 
a flame of hope and joy
that never ends.
May we keep our eyes forever on you;
for only you can release our feet from the snare
That we may walk lightly on the path ahead.
