Prayer During Recession

In this time of recession,
we remember all those who have financial problems
and are finding life difficult.

We hold before You, O Lord,
all those who are fearful for their jobs,
all those who are desperately looking for work
and all those who have become depressed and have given up looking.

May Your Holy Spirit
come among us to heal the tensions of this time
and calm the many fears.

And with Christ by our side,
make us aware of each other's troubles
so that we may
reach out our hands with His friendship
and give unstintingly of His love.
