Prayer for Week 16th July 2017

Prayer of the Week for the Week Beginning 16th July 2017

Holding Hands

As healing hands breach barriers that imprison and divide….
As generous actions reawaken hope where hope has been destroyed….
As open-hearted strangers stand with the oppressed….
We glimpse the love of God, who comes among us.

We glimpse the love of God, who comes among us
In loving deeds inspired by thoughtful prayer
In voices used to call for peace, a peace born of true justice,
In hands stretched out to hold and to encourage.

We glimpse the love of God, who comes among us.
So may our prayers and words and actions
Be signs of Christ, true God in true humanity.   
Amen.
