Pryer 2366: Sixth Sunday After Pentecost
we gather before your altar
and raise our hearts to You in praise.
Teach us to seek the better part
in our devotion to You:
to love and learn from You
with all our intention and attention,
dedicating ourselves to your service.
Let all we do
be done in love in your Name:
from washing the dishes
to reading the scriptures
to serving each other with tenderness.
Our hearts are spread before You like a book:
read your love into our bones,
and bless us, Lord Jesus,
by making us a blessing for the world.
Hold us in the hollow of your hand, Blessed Savior,
and grant your peace to those for whom we pray.
