God of the cross, Jesus willingly gave up his power and it was the most powerful thing this world has ever seen.
It is the same for us; giving of ourselves and our time is a powerful witness to the new life we have in Christ.
Grant us the courage to give up our own power each day, so that we become humble servants to the poor, the hungry, the imprisoned, and the sick. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Joanna Miller (Zion Lutheran Church & St. James Lutheran Church in Philipsburg, ON & Baden, ON) for contributing this week’s prayer.
