Prayer, day 2016

The sun rises in might and power in the East,
and yet the glory of our God is brighter still:
Lord, we open the gates of our hearts to your presence,
and raise to you our songs of praise.

Eternal God,
enter into our lives this day,
and make us whole.
Reconcile us to You
and one another,
that we amend our lives and repair our relationships.
Let the radiance of God's glory
shine forth from our countenance
and testify to God's unending mercy.
May we embody the compassionate, healing love of Christ,
living as true disciples and companions in the Way.

Draw near, O God, to the broken-hearted:
give your angels charge over those wait upon You.
