Prayer, day 2102
God of Mercy,
we bow before You,
grateful for your abundant grace,
laying our cares at your feet in faith.
make us like green olive trees in the house of the Lord,
comforting those in need of shade and embrace,
nourishing those whose hearts hunger for compassion.
God of Justice,
make us steadfast in our willingness
to stand alongside our kindred in solidarity
and prejudice in any form.
May we never be silent, O God,
in the face of injustice or exploitation,
but embody the Way of Love
and shield the vulnerable among us.
we rest within your abiding compassion,
and ask your sheltering, healing hand
to be placed over those for whom we pray.
