Synod prayer

Prayer – Doubt and belief

Life-giving God, we thank you for all life and for your ongoing creation of life. As we look across our world we are saddened by the ways that humanity has determined to misuse your creation.

As we see the ongoing horror of war in the Ukraine, gun violence across the world, the degradation of your good creation we cannot help but cry out in our doubt and fear about the future of our world.

We lament the loss of certainty as we battle the ongoing effects of the Covid Pandemic, the battle with ongoing illness and we wonder what next.

Compassionate God come to us in our doubts and uncertainty, sit with us as we lament, gather us close to you in our fears and remind us again of your promises made true in your son who demonstrates your unfailing love on the cross of Calvary. Help us to hold onto that love in the midst of our suffering and fear, surround us with that love in the midst of our doubt and unbelief so that we can go forward assured of your ongoing hope for the world.

We pray this in Christ’s name
