A Prayer of Love: December 21
Let us pray:
God the Gatherer,
Gather us in together as we worship as your people.
Across the digital airwaves and in sanctuaries together, on the green, and creatively and safely, wherever possible, gather us in.
Help us forgive the old resentments, release the expectations of perfection, and work together through these impossible decisions and seasons, with grace for each other as whole, human, people.
For where there are two or more gathered in the name of the One yet-to-enter-the-world-incarnate, You are there.
And you are beside us in our gathering of Church, however we do it. Amen
Written by Rev. Dr. Chris S. Davies, team leader, Faith Education, Innovation, and Formation
