Prayer 1550: in humble discipleship

Spring blooms gladden the heart.

Eternal God: Earth-maker, Pain-Bearer, Life-giver,
we rise to make our prayer before You, grateful for your care. 
Strengthen our obedience and devotion to your Law of Love and your Way of Mercy, that we may serve You in all things.

Strip out all arrogance and contempt, O Holy One,
and lead us from using each other to loving each other.
Let us walk gently and peaceably with each other, discerning the face of Christ in all persons we encounter.

Lord, guide the hands and hearts of all healers, care-givers, doctors, and nurses, who tend to the sick and suffering.
Tune our hearts to the song of your grace, O God, and bless and keep those whom we lift before You.
