Courage to speak with one voice

September 23, 2011

God our Creator, Source of our life,
you leave the invisible fingerprints of your touch
on each and every human being.
Your breath of life within us
is the bond of our shared humanity.
You gave your own Son in love
to immerse himself into human life,
and make us one family.
Renew within us the light of the Gospel
and the fire of your Spirit.
Give us courage to speak with one voice
and to work in Christ’s name
to bring your justice and fairness,
your freedom and truth,
to all your world.
May the flame of your presence shine out through us,
and the darkness of injustice be scattered
by all we do in your name.

– Reverend Bishop of Norwich, Michael Evans

    This rings deeply true for me.
