Prayer for Today

God help us

God, help us to be people who are able to name,
and to be in touch with our own needs.
To shamelessly and courageously seek out others to journey with us,
and bring wholeness to our lives. 

Help us to be humble enough to understand
That we are all needy people,
And in the midst of our own brokenness,
called to care for the bruised and the broken around us.

You God, expected us to need redemption - 
you planned for it - 
you knew us before we knew ourselves.
Help us to honor people, your beloved of creation,
By bringing goodness, grace and mercy that leads to hope,
And trust in the person of Jesus,
Who has shown us what is good, and what is love.

Amen

  1. It is so important to help yourself-- how are you supposed to be able to help your community and the humanity around you if you aren't whole?

    It reminds me of this video I recently came across-- it's a cute little song about how Jesus and his followers actually Occupy Jerusalem.

    Anyways, here it is: http://youtu.be/a6akkb_afqs
