Prayer, day 889
O God, your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Thank you for your mercy for those who have taken refuge in you,
for we know that your love never fails.
We lift up those who suffer lack of food, of home, of safety.
Bless and strengthen our hands as we work to comfort them,
for we know that we are your hands in the world.
O Great Beloved, all that is in the Earth is yours,
from the depths of the sea to uppermost firmament.
Hear us, O God, as we turn to You,
that you strengthen our wills to work for justice, freedom, and peace.
O Lord, we remember those whose cry may falter
and ask that you guide, guard and give them peace and comfort.
