Friday Prayer


The instant, the moment, the second
he was baptized, touched by the spirit,
he began, using the gifts, he had all along…
~Raymond A. Foss

Loving God, help us to liberate and manifest the gifts you have given us, the characteristics you have known in us, the love you have named for us, and to bring them to the world. In the name of the baptized Jesus we pray. Amen.

Lord, hear our prayers for Lutheran Chik. Help her to find calm center in the midst of a medical storm, we ask in Christ's name. Amen.

Oops--didn't read my email first. Now I get the picture. Should have thanked Songbird for the prayer and picture, and LC I will definitely hold you and your beloved in prayer as you face this.
