(Based on Romans 8:26)
Loving, faithful God, we thank you that nothing can separate us from your perfect Love. We are grateful that in these times of upheaval, stress, and distress, you are in the midst of it all; you are at work despite it all.
Thank you for what we see of you at work in and through the MCC communities around the globe: where the hungry are being fed; where those who are ill are being cared for; where those who are mourning are being comforted; where those crying out for justice do not cry out as lone voices but are surrounded by siblings joining in solidarity. Here is life. Here is hope.
Often we don’t know what to pray for the best. We consider our world that is in so much pain and we don’t know where to start.
Holy Spirit, teach us to pray like Jesus; better still, pray through us.
May your new realm break into this one; into relationships, communities, and nations. We pray this as Jesus taught us to.
