Prayer of Petition
(inspired by Jeremiah 31:31-34)

Gracious God
We come to you broken –
from that which confines us:
the prejudice buried,
weighted down with fear
distorted self-protection
breaking me, breaking you.

And, so we come to you
seeking to be made whole.
For you, God, put your love within us;
you wrote it on our hearts,
that we may be your people.

On this night/day we pray for those who weep,
who are struggling from lack of
clean water
healthy food,
quality, affordable health care.
Women who want to make decisions
about their families, their lives,
their bodies, how and when, and with whom.
And, so we come to you seeking to be made whole.
For you, God, put your love within us;
you wrote it on our hearts,
that we may be your people.

Compassionate God,
God of covenant,
God of love,
We come to you tired,
yearning for peace and harmony.
Loving God,
we offer up our suffering
and come to you seeking to be made whole.
For you, God, put your love within us;
you wrote it on our hearts,
that we may be your people.

Gentle God,
God of covenant,
of Love,
Glorify us through Your love.
Draw us to you, into you.
Anoint us with your peace.
Write your compassion in our hearts
that we may love as you love.
Amen.
