Prayer 1919: The Fifth Sunday in Easter
we gather around your altars to sing your praise,
giving thanks for your mercy and loving kindness,
uniting us in love as your children.
May we set our hearts on bearing good fruit
as branches of the True Vine, Lord Christ;
may we walk in love and compassion,
virtue and mercy,
that the world may know Christ in our actions.
May we open our hearts and hands to the world,
that healing and reconciliation can spring up as a result of our actions
and testify to the power of God's love in our lives.
Abide with us always, Blessed Savior;
lead us into a deeper knowledge of you
as we seek to imitate your example
and live lives that shine your light for all.
Spirit of Love and Healing,
we remember before You our joys and blessings,
and place before You our cares and concerns.
