Prayer for Renewal

February 11, 2011

We are the Lord’s people, the sheep of his flock.
May the Lord heal the sheep who are wounded.
May the Lord touch the sheep who are in pain.
May the Lord clean the sheep who are soiled.
May the Lord warm the lambs who are cold.
May the Lord help us to know the Father’s love
through Jesus the shepherd,
and through the Spirit.
May the Lord help us to lift up that love,
and show it all over this land.
May the Lord help us to build love on justice
and justice on love.
May the Lord help us to
believe mightily,
hope joyfully,
love divinely.

May the Lord renew us that we may help renew the face of the earth.

Amen
