Empower (next day repost)

God,

Help us recognize our failings

          and forgive us our faults.

Give us the grace to resist

          the influence of affluence.

God,

Bestow on us the blessing

          of resting assured

in the comfort

          of your compassion.

God,

We treasure the opportunity

          to serve wholly,

and we look forward

          to doing your will.

God,

We pray for

          the good, the bad, and the unknown,

as we promote peace

          among all peoples.

Make it so
