Prayer

Let us remember that we are always and everywhere in the presence of God.

You are calling us into the future on a path that sometimes seems steeper than it should be.  Help us to remember that we are not alone.

Others, too, have been called.

Some of them will greet us with open arms, jubilant hearts and welcoming homes that will be sacraments of your healing in the world.

Some will speak to us of things that we do not want to hear and will reveal the pain of their wounds.  Wounds that cut us deeply even in the midst of our ignorance.  They are the sacraments of your compassion.

Some will invite us into their world with the simple hope that we will want to enter.  They are the sacraments of your kingdom.

We are being called into your future.  Help us to embrace it with all of the hope you have for it.  Help us to be sacraments of your love in the world.
