Prayer 1269: Inspired by Micah 6:8

Wildflower, Telluride, Colorado

Based on Micah 6:8 

Lord God, Who Creates, Saves, and Empowers All, hear our prayers and praises as we bow the knee of our hearts before You. Guide our footsteps in the way of peace, that we may know and walk in the way of Christ. 

Let us transform our hardness of heart into doing justice, which is compassion and respect caught fire. 
Let us love mercy, remembering our own manifold sins and faults, and thy grace which we receive through abounding love. 
Let us walk humbly before You and each other and upon this fragile Earth You made, O God, for love of Christ. 

Let us proclaim in our actions as well as our words the wonders that God has done in our lives, mercies without end. 
Let us renounce enmity, hatred, envy, resentment, and turn instead to building up the kingdom of heaven as your servants. 

Holy One, you know our hearts even before we turn to You: even in our unworthiness be with us now, Lord Christ, and with those whom we love.
