11 December

Give strength to hands that are tired

 and to knees that tremble with weakness.

Tell everyone who is discouraged,

“Be strong and don’t be afraid!

God is coming to your rescue.”

Isaiah 35: 3-4

Father,

We pray for all those who are tired and weary –

weary from caring for others

weary from trying to make ends meet

weary from coping with pain and illness

We pray for those who are discouraged –

because of repeated knocks and setbacks

because through age and illness they cannot do what they did

We pray for ourselves that we may know your strength

to keep going

to help others

to be witnesses to you
