(Inspired by Psalm 121 and 1 John 4:7-21)
Almighty God, we rest in You and your immeasurable love.
We raise our eyes to the hills; to the heights of the skies our spirits rise, for our help always comes from the Lord. Loving God, shade us from the heat of oppression and hatred, that your perfect love may cast out fear and division.
Keep watch over your people, and keep our feet firmly set upon the path of discipleship. Set us upright within your gates, O God, that we may abide with You and with each other in perfect love through your Son.
Let love be the foundation of all our joy and exultation. Send your Spirit upon us, Loving One, and hear the prayers of those who murmur or mourn.
