Prayer: Your Word

Here’s a prayer of thanksgiving and commitment from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Prayer
(inspired by Isaiah 55: 10-13
and other passages)

You call us to love those
whom you would love,
and give us the words to say.

You call us to bring wholeness
to lives that are broken,
and give us the words to say.

You call us to bring comfort
to those who are grieving,
and give us the words to say.

You call us to bring good news
to those who are seeking,
and give us the words to say.

Your word, living water
in desert sands.

Your word, blossoming
in parched earth.

Your word, bearing fruit
wherever it is sown.
Amen
