Prayer for the Current Financial Situation
Lord God, we live in disturbing days:
across the world,
jobs are taken away,
and fragile security is under threat.
Loving God, meet us in our fear and hear our prayer:
be a tower of strength amidst the shifting sands,
and a light in the darkness;
help us receive your gift of peace,
and fix our hearts where true joys are to be found,
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
This prayer is from the Church of England's web pages related to the current financial crisis. The area of their website is receiving a lot of attention and a lot of visits as the UK also faces fallout from the credit crunch. The site is online here: Matter of life and debt.
