Today, we pray for those who have been betrayed
Lord Jesus, we bring to You those of us who have faced the deepest stab of all – betrayal by a loved one. Lord, You faced rejection and wounds from Your own. We bring to You our own pain, the ceaseless ache caused by the cut from a friend or relative. God, when people who promised to be around don’t stick by, when spouses cheat, when friends gossip or backstab us, and parents, siblings or children reject us, be our comfort. Forgive them cos they do not know what they are doing. Have mercy on us all. Amen.
Collect: Grant us, O Lord, we pray, that the course of our world may be directed by your peaceful rule and that your Church may rejoice, untroubled in her devotion. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
