Prayer 578 (inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
(Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
O Lord, You remind us that there is a time for everything: let today be a time to love and a time for peace.
Let today be a time to heal hurts of the body and hurts of the heart, to mend what has been broken.
Let today be a time to embrace our fellowship with You and with each other, to build up Your Beloved Community.
Let today be a time to speak out for justice, to scatter the stones of ill-will and plant compassion in their place.
Let today be a time to keep watch with those who work or wait or mourn, with those whose times are in Your hand.
