Prayer 1905: Third Sunday in Easter
Holy God, Almighty Creator and Redeemer,
we raise our gratfeul hearts to You
as we are blessed to gather as your people.
We give you thanks, Lord Christ,
for your loving embrace of us
through doubts and unbelief,
holding us within the light of your presence as we seek You
even as you are among us.
Help us to recognize you, Beloved Jesus,
in every person among us who is hungry,
who is homeless,
whom we may have thought was lost to us forever.
Still our hearts and minds, O Savior,
to center ourselves within your wisdom and truth,
and then carry the testimony of your grace
into the darkest corners of our lives.
By the power of the Holy Spirit,
anoint us to your service beyond any walls,
and pour out your tender care and comfort
upon all whose needs we now remember.
