we raise our hearts and voices
in praise and thanksgiving:
hear our prayer.
Forgive us for the hurts we have caused,
and bring us to new life in your mercy.
Make us disciples,
living into your wisdom and truth,
bearing your light into the world.
Lead us into reconciliation and justice,
that we may walk in the way of healing.
Lord, we ask your blessing,
and lay our concerns before you as we pray.
