A Prayer for Sunday, October 30, 2016

The Lord’s Day

O God,

Give us a glimpse of our resurrected Lord today.

Then, help us remember what we saw as we go back into the world, ready and willing to give ourselves up for your sake and for other people’s sake.

Help us open our eyes wide to see the pain and brokenness in the world, but let our glimpse of the resurrected Jesus remain constant in our spirit’s eye.

Help us deal with what is in light of what will be.

Help us remember that beyond pain and suffering lies resurrection and that beyond despair lies hope.

Let us live in light of Jesus’ resurrection so we can be agents of hope in our communities and in our world.
