Naomi’s uplifting Morning Prayer reminds us that it is St George’s Day, the patron Saint of England. She recites her uncle’s prayer to St George and prays we may continue to fight against dragons and rescue the helpless, that we may be delivered by the truth of the gospel, freed from sin, and be granted God’s light over this nation. In her own prayer Naomi takes her inspiration from this morning’s reading of Psalm 5 and asks that God listen to us. She offers our humble obedience and prays for forgiveness when we fall short or are wicked. Naomi prays for help to do the right thing and asks for Christ to defend us with the shield of his presence and accept us with steadfast reliance and abundant love.
