A prayer for wholeness for Easter 4 (Psalm 23, John 10), combined with the day of prayer for Colombia.Submitted by Rev. Teri Peterson, Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church
One: Lord, we pray that we may have clarity of vision, even when what we see is uncomfortable. All: We pray that we may have clarity of hearing as you call us to join your mission. One: We pray that our hearts remain open to seeing you in the others you call, from other places, that there may be one flock, one shepherd. All: We pray that our voices may sing, proclaim truth and only speak words of love. One: We pray that our feet always remain “eager to bring the gospel of peace.” All: Help us, O God, to step forward in confidence, breaking down barriers and welcoming all people into your life of shalom, of peace and healing. Amen.
