Prayer: Daring to Believe

Here’s a prayer inspired by John 20: 24-29, the story of Thomas’s encounter with Jesus after the resurrection.  It comes from the Christian Aid website.


“You believe because you have seen me.
Blessed are those who haven’t seen me and believe anyway. John 20:29

We dare to believe in the things we cannot see:
In your love for us
In your love for those around us
In the hope of eternity.
We dare to believe that another world is possible
That suffering can end
That we can play a part
In the kingdom to come.
We dare to believe in heaven on earth
In the light breaking through
In justice made new
In your love for us.
