Prayer, day 1738: Twnty-first Sunday After Pentecost
O God, our help and our rock,
we join in creation's morning hymn of praise
and offer you our hearts: hear our prayer.
Teach us to love as You love, O Holy One,
who forgives all our sin,
and whose mercy endures forever.
Teach us to love even those who oppose us,
and pray for those who hurt us,
that their hearts
may be turned to amity.
Lead us to do good for the sake of good,
as a testimony to your truth, Lord Christ.
Plant our feet in the way of justice and mercy,
upholding each other in love in your Holy Name.
Spirit of God, breathe your love into us,
and shelter those we lift before You in hope.
