Prayer

“For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones”   Isaiah 49:13

Dear Lord, we pray for your world, remembering the scenes of disaster we see on our screens daily.  Please help the people of Australia at this time, especially those who have lost loved ones, homes and communities. We also remember countries experiencing drought and famine; floods and other disasters, both natural and man-made.  Thank you for the many good things we take for granted in our lives,  and for your grace and love.  In Jesus’ name, amen.
