Prayer for July
A prayer from "Dear Lord" a new collection of prayers and poems from MU members across the world.

CAST ALL YOUR CARE

Cast all your care upon Christ our Redeemer,
and trust in His promise to be by your side.
His love will uphold you; His arms will enfold you,
let Him be your Saviour, your shepherd and guide.

Fret not nor fear, for whatever befalls you,
remember for love of you, Jesus was slain.
In dying for us, he shared all human sorrow
and bore on His shoulders the weight of your pain.

Though life be fraught with all manner of sorrows
the stresses and strains that beset us each day.
Be firm in your faith for the Lord will be with you,
and be by your side as your strength and stay.

by Revd Dr John Davey, Nottingham City Mothers' Union Branch.

On Sunday, 5th January, after a day of high fire danger and fires, the  Archbishop of Sydney, Dr. Glenn Davies, tweeted "To all those praying  for the safety of personnel and residents in New South Wales fires - I urge you to  continue to call on God's mercy. Pray the break in the weather allows  people to get to safety, refresh and give strength to the firefighters.  For those returning, may God give you His hope." The full prayer reads:

A prayer for Australia in drought and fire

Our heavenly Father,
creator of all things and especially the creator of this land and its original peoples;
we call out to you in these desperate times as fires have swept across several parts of our country.
Our  hearts cry out to you for those who have lost loved ones, and those who  have lost properties in the wake of these ravaging fires.
Father we  pray, in your mercy, restrain the forces of nature from creating  catastrophic damage; in your mercy protect human life.
Guard those  volunteers, rural fire service personnel and emergency services who  selflessly step into the breach to fight these fires. Guide police and  authorities who help evacuate and shelter those who are displaced. Bring  comfort and healing to all who suffer loss.
Remembering your  promises of old that seedtime and harvest will never cease, we pray that  you would open the heavens to send refreshing rain upon our parched  land; in your mercy, we pray for drenching rain.
We pray that despite  the forecasts, in your miraculous power you would bring forth rain to  quench these fires and to bring life back into the earth, so that crops  may grow and farmers may bring forth the harvest of the land again.
We bring these requests before your throne, in the name of your Son, who died and rose again for our deliverance. Amen.
