Prayers for the people

As we greet this new day,

facing realities we may find overwhelming,

let us not be weighed down

with a sense of hopelessness and despair.


Grace us with the courage, strength and hopefulness

to meet and engage this day exactly as we find it.

May whatever challenges we face

embolden our resolve to live ever more faithfully

while seeking your truth and justice.

May we find solace in you, O God,

 as we seek to co-create a world that is welcoming,

safe and a place of well-being for all of creation.
