Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.
Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you.
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God;
may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life;
in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.

As it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD OF YOU,
WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY;
THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS,
‘MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD,
MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.’”
John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.
For you have upheld my right and my cause;
you have sat on your throne, judging righteously.

Proverbs 6: 16-19
There are six things the Lord hates,
seven that are detestable to him:
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies
and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

1 Corinthians 12:25-27
So that there should be no division in the body,
but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
If one part suffers, every part suffers with it;
if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you,
then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,
whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates,
or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living.
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

God of presence and strength,
Help us feel you here with us when we are anxious and afraid,
when the future feels unwieldy and uncertain.
We know nothing is unknown to you, O God,
and we know you are our rock and our comfort in times of trouble.
Give us wisdom and courage to make changes that will help things get better.

Help us to know that we are loved. Help us to see that we are precious to you.
We pray for those who feel unloved or alone and isolated today.
We pray that your Spirit will rest with them.
We also pray that we will share your love with all those we encounter
- at the correct social distance.
And that our current isolation and distancing will increase
and not diminish our love for one another.
25th March 2020
We pray today for those who have to go to work and travel.
We pray that you will keep the safe and bring them home again.

Please particularly pray for those lands where health care systems are basic. The piece below mentions Chad where there are no ventilators to support those who are very poorly. Pray for the God of hope to be known.

We pray for all God’s people in this time of uncertainty and concern. That our eternal hope would make an earthly difference.
We pray for a sense of calm and clarity as well as strength to face what is ahead. That Christians will be 'Beacons of Hope' and 'Carriers of the Message of Peace' at this time.
