Deceit

August 30, 2020

Lead us O Lord, through the divisive rhetoric, appeals to fear, misinformation, and other deceits of our political times.

Help us to trust in you and follow your paths.

Awaken us O Lord, to the world as it is and to our own role in its suffering.

Help us to see the possibilities for peace and future prosperity for all.

Create with us O Lord, a democracy and a country where all might thrive.

Let us not be deceived or turned from your ways.

Amen

Seeking Peace

January 4, 2020

They will neither harm or destroy on all my holy mountain for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord . . . Isaiah 11:9

Keep before us a vision of your peace O Lord.

Save us from violence, discord, and confusion;

from fear, intolerance, and terror;

from factions, tribalism, and hyper-partisanship;

from lies, deceit, and mendacity;

from pride and arrogance and every evil way.

Help us pursue your peace O Lord.
