A prayer from Brennan Manning that we have been praying with our team lately…
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,
We pray that our faith-experience of you keep pace with our statements about you.
Grace us with the courage to pray.
Anoint us with the spirit of compassion that we may be with you in the passion of our times;
That we may be poor with those who are poor,
Mourn with those who mourn,
Enter into the struggle of our generation for social justice,
Treat others as we would like to be treated.
We pray for the courage to risk everything on you,
To be with you in your faithfulness
To your mission, our mission.
For this I have come into the world to say,
“Here I am, Lord, I come to do your will.”
