A Prayer on Saturday

Lord, it’s Saturday,

A traditional day for sport and for shopping.

But some people still have to work.

Help me to think of shop workers,

Help me to think of those who are working in hospitals.

Help me to think of the police.

It’s so easy to think of myself and my own enjoyment

And to take for granted that others are working on my behalf.

May your will be done on earth

As it is in heaven.

May you be glorified today.

Amen

“I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone.”

1 Timothy 2:1

Romans 8:38-39

"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."
