Creator, God of Love and hope may we your people always have hearts full of thanks. Thanks for all the blessings in our lives; the blessings of family, friends, our MCC community, the very air we breathe, and for life itself. May we forever be mindful of your unconditional love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Lord let us love just as you do, being people of patience, kindness, humility, justice, and truth.
In a world where there is often division, unkindness and strife help us to remember that You are still moving in and through us, Your people, and that Your love never changes.
May we be vigilant and prayerful, always holding on to the hope we have in You. Hope of a future filled with kindness, peace, and justice for all of Your children regardless of the color of our skin, the depths of our pockets, who we love, or where we were born. May we never forget that Your Spirit lives within us. Give us the courage and strength to stand up for all that is right and just.
We ask all of this in your many wonderful and beautiful names. Amen.
