Prayer: Luke 10: 1-20

Here’s a prayer of intercession and petition inspired by Luke 10: 1-11, 16-20.  It was written by Rev. Dr. Philippa Horrex.

(inspired by Luke 10: 1-11, 16-20)

Loving God, we come to you as a people who know your love.
For that we give thanks and praise.
But Lord,
we know there are many men and women in our world who don’t know you. 
We bring before you those who are lost,
who feel alone, abandoned, and hopeless.
Some live in our own neighbourhoods, our own city.
We pray that we may be able to reach them with the message
that through your grace they might know a different life,
in which restored and renewed, loved and fulfilled,
they might in turn go on to reach others.
