Prayer of Petition: 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-13

Here’s a responsive prayer of petition inspired by 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-13.  It was excerpted from a longer prayer for Proper 28C on the Oratio Contemplativa website.

Prayer
(inspired by 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-13)

God of all love and peace, we come to you in faith,
offering you access into every area of our lives.
We pray for this congregation:
May we not grow weary in doing good.
Keep us from idleness, that we may not be busybodies;
May we not grow weary in doing good.
Enable us to do our work quietly in a manner that pleases you;
May we not grow weary in doing good.
Grant us discernment to fulfill our vocations with industry and hard work;
May we not grow weary in doing good.
We look to you, Lord of all, mindful of our helplessness,
Glorify your name in the midst of our need.
