Prayer & Praise
For your power that notices,
your passion that descends,
your freedom that liberates,
We thank you.
We hold in your presence all those bondaged,
in fear and despair,
in poverty and weariness,
in crime, war, and violence,
in narcissism and self-indulgence.
Work your wonders among us,
in your strength like war,
in your gentleness like nursing,
in your abiding love like forever.
Work your wonders, we pray in the weak name of Jesus.
