A Great Prayer

Lord Jesus, wherever we look we see a world that needs your love and compassion.

And we know we are called to move, to embody your Spirit, to bring comfort to the suffering.

May our passion for people be as Yours, self-sacrificing and all-encompassing.

Let us be Your hands and feet, Your voice and touch, Your smile and strength.

Teach us to love as You love-without condition, without wavering, without fear.

Grant us the courage and conviction to DO DOMETHING that will reach those reaching for you.

Not just those who share our thoughts, looks and desires

Not just those who claim Your name..

Not just those we like.

The whole world.

Help us to act NOW as You need us.

 

Amen.

(Michael Frickstad, 2014)
