Prayer & Reflection

“Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our maker; for He is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under His care.” Psalm 95

Loving God,

Thank you for your love and kindness.
You are a God of mercy, justice, and compassion,
and yet we acknowledge that these qualities are not always reflected
in our lives, in our community, and in our society.

Help us to respond to suffering, poverty, and hunger
in ways that usher in your kingdom:

to see people as you see them,
to share your loving-kindness in the darkest situations,
to challenge injustices that trap people in poverty,
to build a future that sets people free,
so that everyone can share in the fullness of life,
that Christ offers to us all.
