Sunday Prayer

Holy and Gracious God
we give you thanks for
life
home
community
family
and all the blessings that come our way
because You love us.

God, bless us with your love.

Creator God
in the chaos of this world
hunger
dis-ease
sickness
poverty of mind, body, spirit
help us to be your hands and heart
restoring order to creation.

God, bless us with your love.

Mother God
nurture those who weep, comfort
pain
sorrow
loss
despair
fear
with strong arms sustain us
walk with us in darkness.

God, bless us with your love.

Father God
nurture those who seek violoence
abusing
land
body
spirit
by your Holy Spirit may all people
come to know your peace.

God, bless us with you love.

Brother Christ
hear us when we call out to you
blind
deaf
sushing
oppressing
known and unknown
help us name our fears
and be healed.

God bless us this day with your love.

Sister Spirit
lift us up on angels wings
fill our
hearts
minds
spirits
bodies
with hope
that we might respond to God's call
and be the hands and heart of Christ
in this broken world.

God bless us with your love
this day
and every
day.
Amen.

A prayer request - my nephew is an officer on the HMCS Fredericton and his ship is setting sail from Halifax today. He isn't allowed to say where they are going or for how long, which means simply that the mission carries with it significant risk.

Whatever you might happen to feel about the military, war and defense - if you think of it, please pray for all of those setting out today. thanks.
