Sunday Prayer

Creator God, Wondrous Source of life, Author of all that is good, hear my prayer. As I prepare for worship this week, I bring with me the cares and concerns of so many I've walked with in recent days. I am thankful for the blessed gift of being invited onto the holy ground of another person's struggles. This is my call and my privilege.

God, I learned a long time ago that I cannot do what I do, unless you walk with me. So thanks. I've seen a lot of heartache this week, and I have called upon your Spirit for comfort and healing. Forgive my tendency to want to "fix" pastoral concerns, to make things all right for people whose lives are anything but all right. Remind me often that sometimes just being there is the best ministry I can do, and it is all that is required.

Bless our worship this morning. Open us to the daring and radical challenge of the gospel upon our lives. Open our imaginations to the possibilities in front of us as a community of believers. Open us to your empowering Love, this day and every day, for we ask it in Jesus' name. Amen.
