A Prayer for Friday, August 29, 2014


O God,

Thank you for the privilege 

of lifting our prayers up to you, 
of lifting our praise up to you, 
of lifting our problems up to you, 
of lifting people up to you.

Thank you for lifting us up 

when we fall down, 
when we are struck down, 
when we are pushed down.

As we live our lives today and every day, 
help us to lift our eyes so that we see 

the beauty of your creation, 
the wonder of humanity, 
the needs of the helpless and hurting.

As we encounter people today and every day, 
inspire and empower us 

to lift their spirits 
to lift their hopes.
