Father, we pray for the many who are trapped by growing burdens of debt, who see no way out, and who despair for their future: give them courage to tackle the problems they face, clarity in taking decisions which will turn their situation around,
and faith that, as they cry to you in their trouble, you will deliver them from their distress; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
God of power, you are strong to save and you never fail those who trust in you. Keep under your protection all who suffer as a result of debt:
help them through their time of darkness, give wisdom to all who seek to help, and bring them to know true freedom in your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
