  • JUSTICE

    Generous God, Guide us to put to rights what has been put to wrong.
    Guide us to put to good use what has been neglected and abused.
    Guide us to put the best foot forward when so many steps backwards have been made.
    Guide us not to leave things as put but instead to put ourselves into the shoes of others.
    Guide us in justice, in mercy, in grace. Amen.

  • OUR WORLD

    Creator of all, we implore you to give us the ingenuity, the tenacity, and the courage,
    to face the complex challenges of our climate, our environment, our world.
    Help us to remember those that suffer the most. Amen.

  • Grief

    Keep in mind today all those who still grieve for loved ones.
    Lord, Give me the sensitivity to remember and show empathy towards those who 
    live with the pain of grief and loss. Help me find the right words to speak and to know when to keep silent.
