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.
