Prayer: John 10

Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment inspired by John 10:22-30.  It was written by Rev. Teri Peterson from Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church, and posted on LiturgyLink.

Prayer for Wholeness

Lord, we pray that we may have clarity of vision,
even when what we see is uncomfortable.
We pray that we may have clarity of hearing
as you call us to join your mission.

We pray that our hearts remain open to
seeing you in the others you call, from other places,
that there may be one flock, one shepherd.
We pray that our voices may sing,
proclaim truth and only speak words of love.

We pray that our feet always remain
“eager to bring the gospel of peace.”
Help us, O God, to step forward in confidence,
breaking down barriers and welcoming all people
into your life of shalom, of peace and healing. Amen.
