Prayer for Australia
Parts of Australia, including Sydney, have received rain bringing some relief to the wildfires. Please continue to pray with Archbishop Philip Freier, Anglican Primate of Australia.
All things look to you, O Lord,
to give them their food in due season:
look in mercy on your people,
and hear our prayer for those whose lives
and possessions are threatened by fire.
Give protection and wisdom to fire fighters
and other emergency service personnel.
Encourage our generosity to those who suffer loss.
In your mercy restore your creation and heal our land.
So guide and bless your people,
that we may enjoy the fruits of the earth
and give you thanks with grateful hearts,
through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
