“God, and Father of us all, be with us as we struggle with the uncertainty of our lives. Help us know your loving care will never be dissolved by our fears; that you will be with us always, in the trials and joys of this life, and in the life to come. Amen”
The author of this week’s prayer notes, “When we are asked by a friend or family member to pray for them, we sometimes do not know what to ask, and we say we will, but seldom do. Here is a simple method you can use to help you comply and genuinely pray as requested.” Instead of “be with us,” he personalizes the prayer with the name of the person.
