Prayer based on Mark 9:14-29, Jesus healing a boy possessed by a destructive spirit

Answer us, Great God of Justice,
Lord of Hope
Bringer of Change and New Life
Have mercy
Draw near
Finish your good and generous work

Release us from
the chains of this moment, born of imprisoned years
the distractions and false calls of those who cannot help
the apathy keeping us from seeing, speaking, and caring
the smallness of your Kingdom stealing our courage to try
the slowness of your Kingdom chipping away at our enduring

We believe, help our unbelief
Raise us from our comas to stand with you
Release our petified voices
Deliver us of our demons

You have made us new
You are making us new
You are making all things new

Prayer for the Discouraged

Ploughman With Woman Planting Potatoes by Vincent Van Gogh

Jesus
You give the gifts
You make the way
Encourage all who our discouraged, including your beloved [NAMES]
Grant them persevering faith
Open their eyes to all the blessing and grace surrounding them
Open their ears to the truth of their talents and calling
Open their hearts to the hope
that this season of planting will bring forth beautiful and lasting fruit
The harvest is coming
Keep their hand to the plow
Amen
