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

Preserving Our Liberties

July 4, 2020

You my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. Galatians 5:13-15

Lord, we know that freedom isn’t free and democracy is not self-sustaining.

Both take courage, and persistence, and regard for others.

Help us to do our part.

Help us use our freedom not just to claim “liberty,” but to seek justice for all, to care for one another even if that means wearing a mask, and to reach across partisan divides with love and forgiveness.

Open our eyes and our hearts that we might free those who suffer in our economy from want and need and loss of opportunity, and find ways to prosper together.

Help us to seek your truth and serve you O Lord.

Amen
