God of peace, we long to live in your shalom.
Our screens and airwaves are filled with stories of fear, violence, and desperate need. Sometimes we’re simply overwhelmed and we tune out. What can one person do? What can one faith community do?
Undergird our trust and faith in your promises of blessing for the world. Help us to do whatever small or great thing is within our capacity to do, knowing that you multiply our efforts. In the name of Jesus, we pray.
Many thanks to Rev. Annemarie MacIntosh (Abundant Life Lutheran Church, East St. Paul, MB) for contributing this week’s prayer.
