God of Revelation, your good news comes to us in the midst of ruling empires and false gods.
You created this world and everyone and everything in it belongs to you.
Often it is a broken world because we have messed it up. You are on a mission to make it whole again.
Allow us to partner in that mission. Have us show the world that you want enemies to be friends, the hungry to be fed, and walls we have built torn down.
May we reveal you by our actions to free whatever binds and holds the world from being all that you created it to be. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Steve Hoffard, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Kingston, ON, for contributing this week’s prayer.
