Prayer: Our loving Father and protector of your redeemed people, we come to you as weary pilgrims in a world that has rejected your Word and heaps troubles upon us. There are times in our lives when we struggle with anxiety over evil people’s efforts to bring us harm. At times, many oppose us, though we only desire the good of those who hate us. At times, many sometimes taunt and mock us because we place our hope in you. Sometimes, Father, those attacks come from within our household. Sometimes they come from supposed friends. Sometimes they come from our employers. Indeed they come from various places. Yet, we look to you to be a shield around us. As we face these things, we ask that you protect and guide us. We ask that you would make us trust you and your divine providence and wait for your work to be accomplished throughout. Please grant us peace in calamity and help us due to the work of your Son we pray in His Name. Amen.
