Prayer of the Day 9/20/08

Today's verse: Psalm 31:2

Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.

Let us pray:

Lord God, you have come to protect the helpless, defend the oppressed, and to set the captives free. We lift up these hostages to your care: defend them, protect them, and in your time rescue them from their captors. Give them strength to endure their ordeal, and give them a sense of peace that can only come from you. Comfort their families and loved ones, and give them perseverance and hope until the day when they are blessedly reunited. All this we ask in your holy Name. Amen.

Welcome to Pray for the Hostages

Welcome! This blog is intended to serve as a resource and activity center for the Pray for the Hostages group. Here you will find links to online prayer sites, opportunities to participate in individual or group activities, and Bible study resources. Over the next few weeks we will be launching a number of projects that I hope everyone will consider taking part in.

If you are on Facebook, please check out our Pray for the Hostages group there. For the latest news, updates and background information on the hostages and hostage-related issues, please visit my blog Not Ready for my Burqua.

Thank you for your support. We have a big job ahead of us, but with God anything is possible. Let's pray until all the hostages are home.
