A CLWR prayer for the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

Crucified and risen, you are Lord. Show us the way of compassion, despite our wicked tendencies.  

Teach us to hear your Word on the breath of those whom we deem unworthy. Turn our ego-centered living towards other-focused compassion towards those in our world who are beaten with words and worse.  

Bring us ever-closer to you, O God, through the building up of our relationships here and now with those you send our way. Amen

Thanks to Rev. Jane Gingrich (Hills of Peace Lutheran Church, Kamloops) for contributing this week’s prayer!
