A Prayer for Toronto priestwife

A Prayer for Toronto

O Lord, we call upon You in our time of sorrow, that You give us the strength and will to bear our heavy burdens, until we can again feel the warmth and love of Your divine compassion.

Be mindful of us and have mercy on us while we struggle to comprehend life’s hardships.

Keep us ever in Your watch, till we can walk again with light hearts and renewed spirits.

In Jesus name, Amen.

A PSALM Of COMFORT

This past Sunday we read Psalm 23 and recalled Jesus as the Good Shepherd, the one who cares for all his people in times of anguish.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
    He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
    for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Archbishop of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, Colin Johnson, joins in prayer and lament
