A Prayer for Saturday, April 16, 2016

Twenty-First Day of Easter

O God,

So many people are
dying unnecessarily.

They are dying because of
choices other people are making,

choices motivated by

the quest for riches and
the quest for power.

So many people are

making choices,
pursuing policies, and
carrying out actions

that lead to death
and destruction.

Help us bear witness to life
in the midst of all this death.

Help us live in ways that
are motivated by a quest
for simplicity and service.

Help us advocate for

policies, and

that lead to life.

Thank you that we
are alive in Christ.

Let the life we have
in him cause us to
pursue life for others.
