Prayer for today

We pray to you, our good and gracious God,
as a people who cherish the memories that are ours,
and who claim a common history as a sacred gift.

We ask you to renew your grace in us,
that we might recognize your presence in our midst
and hear the call of the gospel
in the human needs that surround us.

You have called us, your people, into the wilderness
to travel your unknown ways.

Make us strong to leave behind false security and comfort,
and give us new hope in our calling;
that the desert may blossom as a rose,
and your promises may be fulfilled in us.

Through the power of your compelling Spirit
may we grow in courage,
that our actions may reflect the love we profess.

We ask this in the glory of the resurrected Christ.
