Prayer, day 2045: Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost
we lift our hearts to You
to be filled with your limitless love
as we walk in your path of peace.
In your mercy,
forgive us our failures,
our maneuvering against each other regardless of cost.
Make us faithful in little things,
that we may be worthy of bearing your Holy Name
into the world, O Holy One.
Teach us to always walk in mercy and forgiveness,
compassionate and welcoming to the stranger.
Make us upright and generous,
like a green olive tree in your house, O God,
and make us a blessing to those we meet.
Make us happy to serve others, Lord Christ,
especially the lost,
and those in any pain or grief.
By your grace,
dwell in our hearts and minds, O God,
and place your hand of blessing on those who call upon You.
