Prayer 1656: for a revolution of hope
Glory to You, Most Holy God,
we rise to give you praise and honor.
Open our eyes by faith
to see your radiant truth;
open our hearts by hope
to nurture your law of love within us.
Lead us, O Jesus, in paths of compassion,
that we may take up your healing work with joy.
May we resist the works of darkness:
injustice, enmity, and falsehood,
and denounce all who profit through greed.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
work in us a revolution of hope,
caring for each other as You care for us, O God.
Lord, we rely upon your saving help:
place your hand of blessing and protection
on those for whom we pray.
