God of our days and lives,

Teach us to live our lives to the fullest,

Teach us to take joy in the many blessings you have showered us with,

Teach us to love one another as those in the early church did,

Teach us to be the church to those who are in need around us.

God of our comings and goings,

Help us to order our work, our play, and our time around you.

Help us to find time to spend with our families, our loved ones and our friends.

Help us to rest and relax as needed.

Help us to spend time in prayer and meditation with you.

God of our world,

Remind us to not turn our backs on those dying from the famines.

Remind us to not turn our eyes away from the rioting that is occurring.

Remind us to not turn our hearts away from those sold into slavery and into the sex trade.

Remind us to not turn our minds away from those who are still recovering from earthquakes.

God of our churches,

Strengthen us to maintain justice.

Strengthen us to do what is right in your eyes.

Strengthen us to be the voice for those who are not able to speak for themselves.

Strengthen us to be your church in this world.

Amen.
