Almighty and eternal God, Father of the world to come, your goodness is beyond what our spirit can touch and your strength is more than the mind can bear. Lead us to seek beyond our reach and give us the courage to stand before your truth. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Father in heave, God of power and Lord of mercy, from whose fullness we have received, direct our steps in our everyday efforts. May the changing moods of the human heart and the limits which our failings impose on hope never blind us to you, source of every good. Faith gives us the promise of peace and makes known the demands of love. Remove the selfishness that blurs the vision of faith. Amen.
Loving God, we have seen death too often to believe in death. It is not ending-but a withdrawal. As one who has finished a long journey they walk the path towards home. May we share in Christ’s victory and enjoy the vision of your glory forever. Amen.
Heavenly Father, when we feel like giving up, please help us to see the hopeful signs of our times. Shine your light so that we may continue to be faithful to you always. We ask this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
