Loving God, you fill all things with a fullness and hope that we can never comprehend. May we place our hope in what matters and what lasts.
Listen to our hearts’ longings for the healing of our suffering world.
We open our hearts and offer prayer to :
Sarah, and all those with Covid
Eileen, Tamara and all those fighting cancer
Anne Rogers and all those adjusting to the death of a spouse
Prayers for the journey of the soul of William Z Good, Holocaust
survivor, who died Christmas day
Thanksgiving for the life of Beverly Brook’s mother, who died on her
Prayers for Erika and the soul of her husband Chris, who died on New
Teachers, who are facing an impossible task.
Prayers for all those unsheltered
This week, especially, we ask for prayers for our country, for the
health of our democracy and for a peaceful transition of power.
Knowing, good God, you are hearing us better than we are speaking, we offer these prayers in all the holy names of God. Amen.
When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins,
To find the lost
To heal the broken
To feed the hungry
To release the prisoner
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among all,
To make music in the heart.
~~ Howard Thurman
Blessings for a beautiful week,
