Prayer 1272- Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
Most Merciful God, You have brought us to this new day: let us worship You in thanksgiving and in holiness.
Let us offer all that we have and all that we are to You, Lord, to be consecrated to your service and love.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, redeem our rebellious hearts: help us to turn away from sin and division.
Let us remember your love even in times of trial, and bear it into the world rejoicing.
By power of the Holy Spirit, help us heal the wounds that plague our souls and our communities.
Rest your hand upon us and bless us, we pray, and press the kiss of thy blessing upon those we now name.
