Prayer, day 1998: Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
(Inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
O Lord, You remind us that there is a time for everything:
let today be a time to love
and a time for peace.
Let today be a time to heal hurts of the body
and hurts of the heart,
to mend what has been broken.
Let today be a time to embrace our fellowship with You
and with each other,
to build up Your Beloved Community.
Let today be a time to speak out for justice,
to scatter the stones of ill-will
and plant compassion in their place.
Let today be a time to keep watch
with those who work or wait or mourn,
with those whose times are in Your hand.
