Sunday Prayer: Baptism of Jesus

Holy God, before time you named us
Through time you redeem us
You call us, precious,
in your Spirit
your fire!
May we love as you love. 

Holy One, through the turbulent waters
Hold us.
Make us steady, your hands
Holding strong the fragile and weak
May we love as you love.

Gracious God, may the fruits of our lives
food for the hungry and clothing.
shelter, fire, water, to those in need.
May we love as you love.

God of justice, remove the chaff
Of our lives that keep us from
Hearing, following, Your call
May we love as you love.

Loving God, take this day our fears our
Worries, distractions, and all
Turn them into wheat, heart food
May we love as you love.

May we tend all in need.
May our hearts be informed by You
May our actions reveal Your grace
May our words reveal Your mercy.
May our prayer today be Your prayer.
