In the times when we give – however generously

it becomes blatantly clear, OGod,

how ridiculous our attempts are to balance the scales;

We cannot repay Your abundance of supply

Your extravagance of grace;

Nor do You require it.

So, why should we expect it of others?

In truth, we cannot.

Like You we can only love – by giving, by serving, by praying.

 

And so we ask…

Free the score-keepers in our world and in our hearts

Restore the fallen in our world and in our hearts

Strengthen the merciful in our world and in our hearts

Heal the broken in our world and in our hearts

Uplift the lowly in our world and in our hearts

Bring down the tyrants in our world and in our hearts

Erase the lines of division in our world and in our hearts

Create a Christ-guided humanity in our world and in our hearts

 

And use us to make it so.

In Jesus’s Name.

 

Amen.
