Prayer: A Vision of Abundant Life

Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment from the Christian Aid website.

Prayer

'I came that they may have life,
and have it abundantly.' John 10:10

Merciful God, 
who is more than we can ever imagine, 
give us a wider vision of the world; 
give us a broader view of justice; 
give us dreams of peace 
that are not defined by boundaries of geography
or race or religion, 
or by the limitations of worldly structures and systems. 

Open our eyes and our ears
that wherever we go, 
we may hear your voice calling us by name; 
calling us to serve, 
calling us to share, 
calling us to praise, 
so that we never give up on the promise of your kingdom, 
where the world is transformed, 
and all can enjoy life in all its fullness. 
Amen.
