Prayer 1647: the Eighth Sunday After Pentecost

Birds find their homes in the branches.... (Matthew 13:31-33)

God of All Mercy, we gather before You in joy and gratitude,
drawn before your altars to sing your praises.
May we make our hearts fertile fields
to produce abundant love and healing for the world.
May we receive your gospel, Lord,
and plant it deep within us
to reconcile with all of creation
and live into your dream for us.
May we seek to serve You, Blessed Jesus,
as faithful witnesses and healers in the kingdom of heaven.

By the power of the Holy Spirit,
unite us as one body,
filled with grace,
remembering always our redemption.
Pour out your blessing upon us, O Creator,
and uphold and bless those whose hope is in You.
