Evening Prayer June 2, 2012
Steadfast love stretches us, challenges us, changes us. Wisdom teach us of the beauty in imperfection, to learn from the challenges we face now, to lean on faith and hope as we risk faithfully for goodness and with steadfast love. Help us help one another, stranger, neighbor, kin and friend. Let us together grow a more generous and more merciful way, a way of where disagreement and discord need not result in violence or hardened hearts. Instead, help us appreciate well each others’ differences, what we can know as gifts and what we do not understand or even like. Let us grow steadfast and loving, through the challenges and the changes, the difficulties and the celebrations, and together build a more generous and merciful way. Amen.
