Today we join with Christians around the world, praying 'Thy Kingdom Come’. Let's today remember our common humanity.
O God, who in Jesus gave us an example
of how to embrace pain and opposition,
as we enjoy both sun and rain
from our common humanity help us
to pray intently for the redeeming and blessing
of our blue and green planet.
In Jesus’ name,
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
