God of new beginnings, you call us into community and you call us to love one another. Forgive us when we do things that sever relationships, and point us back into healthy connection with each other.
Give us hearts for justice and peace, that we may treat one another – close by and far away – with compassion so that all may have abundant life.
This we pray through the one in whose name we gather, Jesus Christ. Amen
Thanks to Rev. Tyler Gingrich, CLWR’s Youth Engagement Coordinator, for contributing this week’s prayer.
