Sunday Prayer

(This prayer is cross-posted over at my place.

God of Life, Source of Love, we thank you for the power and extravagance of your love for all creation. Such love is almost incomprehensible. You love us, each one of us, just as we are. You have hopes and dreams for us, because in your eyes we are like a precious, priceless gift, ready to be a blessing in the best way possible.

Help us to know that your love is not bought for a price – it simply is. Help us to accept this grace and let it wash over us in waves of acceptance and eternal love.
We thank you God for every blessing we encounter in our lives. We thank you for the care and support of others through life’s challenges and for those who share our joys with us.

We thank you for the meaningful essence of this Lenten walk we have shared together...for its challenges and its discoveries.

God of Compassion, we pray for all we know to have special need of your grace this day. The sick, the dying, the fearful, the hungry, the lonely, the confused, the discerning, the lost, the saddened, the despairing, and all who struggle in body, mind or spirit.

God, be with all who need to feel your presence with them. Grant the comfort and peace that only you can provide. Let your arms enfold your children, that they may find refuge in the warmth of your embrace.

All this we pray in the name of Jesus who leads us onward toward Jerusalem. Prepare our hearts, minds and spirits for what awaits him there, that we might stay with him in these coming weeks, even when the skies turn dark. Amen.
