The God of humility, in his desire to save us, was willing to share our human brokenness, as the Body of Christ, may the Church share that willingness to be vulnerable in order to serve in love.
God’s power and authority is gracious and merciful; may all those with authority in our world be inspired to act with mercy and compassion, so that the way may be opened for the kingdom to be established.
May we all have the strength to drive far from our homes and communities all rejection and devaluing, all justification for barriers; and may we have the courage to reach out in love.
May God’s compassion shock us into seeing more clearly the ache of those whom society rejects and overlooks; the wounds of the discarded and socially embracing. May we reach out where others turn away.
We remember those who, healed for ever, live with God in the fullness of life. We pray that we too may come to share the life which has no ending.
