Sunday Prayer: Easter 5A

Holy God, we give you thanks
for the gift of life,
especially for the gift
Your Son, the Christ,
the Word, the way,
the truth,
who expands our
limited understanding
with outstretched arms
of love.

Holy God, we pray that you
be present with those the suffering
from storms or floods, from
draught, wind, or any of the
tides of creation that seek to
break down your creation
and destroy the work of
your hand.

Holy God, we pray that you
be comfort those afflicted,
the sick, and those who have died.
Embrace them in your hand, hold them
tender, like a mother her child,
like a father his infant, like
a friend cares for

Holy God, we ask that you so fill
our hearts, our minds, our spirits,
with your love and compassion that
we can be your hand, your heart
in the world.
