Prayer 2006: On the Feast of St. James the Apostle
Most Merciful God,
place your hand upon us
and guide us in paths of compassion and faithfulness,
that we may follow you always at your call.
Help us put down our nets and all that ensnare us
and draw us from you, Lord Christ,
that we may witness to your love and healing.
Gentle us, Beloved Savior,
and help us temper our zeal
with lovingkiness and humility
that we may walk beside you always.
Sustain and bless us by the power of the Holy Spirit, O God,
and place your hand of blessing
upon these beloveds for whom we pray.
