The Lord’s Day
It’s been a hard week.
For many of us, it’s been a hard life.
Still, we praise you for all your blessings even as we ask for your grace, peace, love, and guidance.
If and as we have been involved in or complicit in ways of thinking, talking, and acting that have made life hard for others, forgive us. Give us grace to repent. Give us grace to make things right, insofar as we can.
Help us to come together.
Let your great love that we see in Jesus Christ—love that gives itself up for others’ sake—fill and inspire us, so that we become your ambassadors for peace.
