God of all, you show yourself through vulnerability and need. It’s not in great displays of power and privilege that you show yourself, but in those places where we find ourselves weak or requiring help. We know that there are those in our world who mourn, those who are poor in spirit, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, those who are merciful, and we confess that we do not always respond. Work through us to meet need in our midst. Through your son, Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
