We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
Thank you for blessing those who are sick. When the poor and needy cry out, you protect them. You heal them and restore their strength. We thank you for the personal times when we have needed your touch and you have proven that you are always close to the brokenhearted. Though we are sinners, when we have sought your face, you are there.
Father, today, especially we pray for those who have been infected by this pandemic… those who are physically sick and those who are emotionally hurting or who have lost their businesses or their jobs. Please, Father, we call out to you, great physician. Heal our land. Heal this earth. Forgive us.
We turn to you. Thank you for turning your face towards us, not away from us.
May you be praised forever!
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
