“"You must put into the earth everything you take out and do it faithfully."”
“"Justice is not taking what is not ours; it's sharing resources that belong to the whole human family."”
God of Providence, you are a God of mystery and surprises.
Thank you for the times unexpected gifts have come my way:
Instead, I will ask that Your resolutions be mine.
Your path, my path. Your will, my will.
Let us walk headlong into this new year together.
My faith is threadbare, worn almost to a whisper.
And yet I need You more than ever.
Help us remember the needs of the many,
not merely our own.
May we never remain complacent, frustrated and hopeless.
Holy God,take away all hatred, prejudice and divisionand all things that interfere with what makes us ONE.May we be united in beliefs and practices of Peace, Faith, and Justice…Empower us…
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light
I don’t even want to recount
what has happened
in my life this year.
I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.
Give us an abundance of patience as we learn to juggle our teaching, sanitizing, distancing and masking, while trying to be attentive to the needs of our students.
Protect us from plummeting into the social darkness of racism, poverty and despair that a pandemic can cause.
Aid our global community as it seeks to share resources, human skills and the knowledge needed to eradicate the virus.
Are you in need of prayer?
You're not alone.
We'd like to pray for you.
