Prayer of Healing
The watch seems long and too often we are distracted, weary, or fast asleep.
Awaken us from our slumber.
Make us good servants
and good stewards of the gifts you have given us to serve our neighbors.
Draw our hearts to heaven—to your Kingdom and your will—
so we can build our treasure with you and be ready for your return.
We share with you now the times we have been slow to serve and less than loving.
(Prayerful silence is kept)
Words of Grace
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
