Please join us in the Peace Prayer for September:

Christ has no body now but yours
No hands but yours,
No feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
   Christ’s compassion
   must look out on the world.
Yours are the feet with which to go
  about doing good.
Yours are the hands
  with which to bless us now.
May it be so.
—-Adapted from “No Hands But Yours”

Dear Lord, we pray you will watch over
all those in the path of the storm.
Amen

World and Regional Concerns
God of peace, of justice, of love, You are good beyond all that is good. 
Invite all of humanity to experience your kingdom more fully - even now, even here.
To find it among your imperfect people and in unlikely places and times. In suffering as fully as in joy, for this is how you choose to come and be and live; WITH US in our actual living of messy lives. 
Lord, You are the strength of the weary.

Heal the dissensions which divide us from one another and from ourselves. We pray for peace in communities near and far, peace in our hearts, peace among the wondrous diversity of people you have made, peace between countries, between religions, between ideologies, and regions. We pray for the presence of your surpassing peace in each mind, and it's comfort and compassion felt in each life. Bring vitality and healing to those whose health and safety have been threatened, especially by the Zika virus, earthquakes, drought, storms, contaminated water supplies, homelessness, hopelessness, and trauma. 

Fill us each with active and holy compassion for ALL your people, and make us mindful of those WE harm with our choices, willful blindness, and apathy. May your grace, love, and hope be made known, and lived-out in us more fully, so that EACH may taste the sweet goodness you give so freely to all!
