Sunday Prayer: For Love

For the love of all that is holy,
O Most Sovereign God,
you are faithful and mighty,
and we worship you gladly.

For the love of all that is earthly,
O Magnanimous God,
you plant your love in us to take root and bear fruit,
so that the Spirit might reap a harvest that satisfies all people.

For the love of all that is beautiful,
O Creative and Lyrical God,
you teach us the rhythm of trees clapping
and the pulse of mountains dancing.

For the love of all that is broken,
O Sorrowing and Salving God,
you hold us like a mother cradling her child
who has been shot in the streets, and you echo her wail.

For the love of all that is possible,
O Ultimate and Eternal God,
you claim victory even while restoration is far off,
and we pray hard for the justice that is still to unfold.

For the love of all that is life-giving and heartbreaking,
O Most Foolish God,
you call us “friends” and do not hold back your welcome.
Would that we would do the same in the name of Love!

For the love of all that is holy,
O God our God, by Jesus Christ
you reconcile us to yourself and to one another.
Let your marvelous deeds never cease!
