A Prayer of Love: December 22

Let us pray:

Prince of Peace,
Lift our eyes and spirits to the people of our community outside of our congregations. 
Help us notice where the people hurt, God, and respond in Christian compassion for the needs of the people. 
Help us organize to change the systems that hold people in perpetual pain and to co-create the Communities you dream of for each one of us. 
Connect us outwards, God, for there is nowhere where you are absent. Amen 

Written by Rev. Dr. Chris S. Davies, team leader, Faith Education, Innovation, and Formation
