Here’s a prayer of petition inspired by Luke 10:38-42.
Prayer of Petition
(inspired by Luke 10: 38-42)
whose being is perfect righteousness:
reconcile us in your Son with the helpless and the needy,
with those we would ignore or oppress,
and with those we have called enemies,
that we may serve all people as your hands of love,
and sit at the feet of those
who need our compassionate care. Amen.
