God who mends our brokenness, may we convey hope to people in need of a hopeful word. You know where we have limitations, and yet you know how each of us can contribute to the greater good. Where there is brokenness in our world, work through us to bring peace, and to help others have shelter, food, clothing and what they need for life. In the name of the One who proclaimed the good news of God’s reign, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
