Let us Pray
God of miracle and God of everyday,
may we see you now
healing, feeding, teaching, serving,
through ordinary people,
whom you call to be your body in the world today.
We thank you that you reveal your love
in those around us,
and that you even enable us
to step up to be Christ for one another.
Lord, forgive us
for the times we cannot be bothered,
the times we look to our own comfort first,
and forget that your command is to love one another.
Forgive us and help us to do better.
in Jesus you gave us a perfect example.
May we keep on learning from him,
and may we become imitators of him,
until we too are sought out by others,
as people of peace and of love in the name of God,
who is love.
when we are frightened,
give us courage;
when we are disturbed,
bring us calm;
when we sit in darkness,
show us the beginnings of dawn;
when we want to retreat and be quiet,
nudge us back to bring life to others;
when we are tempted to hoard what we have,
open our hands to share.
again and again remind us that we have power:
power to heal the earth and its people.
May we use that power
in love and service as Christ showed us.
surprise us with glimpses of you
at work around us,
making all things new.
May we yearn to be a part of that,
working alongside you,
to heal creation with you,
God of the universe
Hear us now as a family we pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
