Prayer, day 1908: Upheld by Grace

We rise from our night rest
with your praise on our lips, O Holy One:
let us walk humbly and gently upon the earth,
giving thanks for your glorious creation.

Blessed Redeemer, make our hearts a sanctuary
for your never-failing Love,
and turn our hands to bringing that Love to the world.

Heal the divisions among us, O God,
and unite us in our common life together,
that we may live in justice, peace, and charity
with each other.

We thank you for preserving us
through the trials we encounter, Spirit of the Living God,
for You are with us always,
and uphold us by your grace and mercy.

Send your Presence as a healing balm, Merciful Healer, especially to these for whom we now pray.
