Prayer 1310

Detail of a window at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Ferguson.

The heavens are telling the glory of God: let us join in the song of creation, praising God always. Holy, Holy God, shine the light of your countenance upon us, and guide us in the ways of peace and justice. 

Lift the darkness from our hearts by the light of your Word, and bring us in safety through the day. 
Guide our hands and hearts, that we may be forces for healing and testaments of your abundant grace. 
Open our hearts to the poor and oppressed, that we may walk humbly with Christ our Savior and model. 

Merciful One, look with favor upon all those who call upon You, comforting them and bringing them peace. Stretch forth the hand of your blessing over those whose needs we raise before You, we pray.
