A Prayer of Joy: December 17

Let us pray:

In the beginning, 
You hovered over the earth, disordered and full of chaos 
Your presence brought order and illumination 
God, hover over our world once again 
It seems that turmoil and confusion are the order of the day 
We seek your intervention if only through the hands and feet of those empowered by the joy found in you 
Empower us to do justice, discern among chaos, and speak boldly that equity, peace, and concord might abide with us. Amen 

Written by Rev. Dr. Anthony L. D. Scott, associate conference minister, Rocky Mountain Conference, UCC

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