A prayer for others
O great and generous God, graciously set your eye this day
on those who know their need of you
through pain, through trouble,
through grief, through their own fault.
Nurse the weak,
bandage the broken, console the desolate,
forgive the penitent.
O Christ who shared our flesh, graciously set your eye this day
on those who have no need for you
through pride, through disappointment,
through doubt, through the failure of false friends.
Soften the hardened heart,
confront the arrogant will,
uncover hidden depths
and the truth that sets us free.
O Holy Spirit, breath of God,
move among us this day.
Open us to the beauty of the earth
so that we may become its servants.
Open us to the wonder of life
that we may recognise an angel at every corner.
Open to us the storehouse of your grace
and we will be made new for Jesus’ sake.
