Your generosity of grace
knows no bounds,
it is unfathomable in depth,
immeasurable in breadth.
You disturb us, provoke us, challenge us
to do the same—
to make right relations,
to feed the hungry,
to resist evil,
to stand for justice,
to work for dignity for all.
We pray that you soften our hearts,
open us wider to serve You
with energy and imagination.
We pray now, for all the brokeness we are aware of in this world…
We pray now, for those who suffer from illness of all kinds…
We pray now, for the concerns that simmer in our hearts…
We pray now, for the prayers that we have no words for…
We offer these prayers in the name of Jesus, our brother, our teacher, our redeemer,
