Love & Mercy

God of all love and mercy,
forgive us.

We have failed one another — we have failed
your image in each person and all creation.

God of all love and mercy,
surprise us.

With mustard seeds, with wild dreams, with grace,
replace our self-assurance with childlike wonder.

God of all love and mercy,
restore us.

Our well-being is in the hands of our neighbors,
both despised & beloved, friends & strangers both.

God of all love and mercy,
delight us.

Make of terror a fool, make of devastation a song,
make of our meager lives a story of your miracle.

God of all love and mercy,
amen.
