Peace Prayer for July 2021
Dear Lord,
Please be in our midst as we come together
to lift up our country and our leaders.
Please protect our country from the division
that challenges our ability to live lives pleasing to you.
Defend the vulnerable and voiceless,
and bring justice to those who have suffered injustice.
Please lead and guide our prayers by the power of your Spirit,
so that we might pray in peace and unity with your will.
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 Corona 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!
