Reflection - Rev. Ian Faulkner
Our prayers for others
Ian and Sonia
|We pray for the unwise.||We want to act wisely; grant us wisdom.|
|We pray for those we love.||We pray for those we have never met.|
|We pray for those who are lonely.||We pray for those who are sad.|
|We pray for victims of war.||We will work for peace.|
|We pray for those struggling with addiction.||We pray for patience and compassion.|
|We pray for those without hope.||Grant us tangible hope to share with all.|
|We pray for those who are weary.||May their burdens be shared.|
|We pray for our enemies.||Help us to love as you love us.|
|We pray for those who have been silenced.||Enable us to share their song with others.|
|We pray for the hungry.||May all the world share the food we have.|
|Help us to live carefully.||Help us to live wisely.|
|Help us to rejoice in all things.||Help us to be grateful in all things.|
|In the name of your child -||our wise teacher, we pray.|
And now we pray specifically for ourselves.
Our God, Holy Wisdom, we open the windows of our hearts to you.
|Feed us with your bread of life;
inspire us with your awesome presence
so that we might more fully become the people you have called us to be.
