A Prayer of Hope: December 1

Let us pray:

God of Love, Let Your love and compassion flow through us and to those around us
Give us compassion and concern for the suffering of others
Give us the compassion and empathy we need to understand what those in our community are going through

Give us grace for the stranger and love for those who feel they don’t belong
Help us to show up well, to offer support, and see You in our neighbor’s eyes

Written by Rev. Traci D. Blackmon, associate general minister, justice and local church ministries

This prayer is part of a series of daily reflections for Advent 2021.
