Hides 11:1-9, Matt.10
God calls us out with compassion.
Jesus tells us to proclaim the kingdom of heaven is at hand by living out our faith in action.
How can we live in this way of power to heal and bring his peace ?
Hosea tells us that God is our healer even when we did not know it.
Think about all the ways God has worked on your behalf after you have suffered a little while .
We give thanks as we pray with open hearts to the Holy One always present among us.
“Your kingdom is at hand so we receive all that your kingdom has for us to live in abundance today.
Let us see your spirit moving in and around us to empower your works through us.
May we do everything out of your living kindness and with a compassionate heart.
You who loved us and healed us when we did not know you .
Keep our eyes pealed upon your kingdom that is right here now in the middle of turmoil and division.
We hold the banner of peace before us wherever we go.
May we be your hands and feet to show the works of a true kingdom that are not made by mere mortals but by your spirit .
Thanks be to God, the three in one, who lives and moves and has their being is us.”
