Christian Aid Weekly Prayer

Week beginning 15th October

Great and wonderful God, we give thanks for the scriptures in which we hear your word of life. Give us wisdom to learn from the story of Israel, the story of Jesus and the story of your church. Help us when we have to hear hard words or witness difficult emotions. Give us the help of your Holy Spirit, as we read texts which trouble us, to look for your light and listen for your truth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
