A Prayer for the week

There is a Love that is deeper than love,
that fills the world,
that fuels the world.

O, give thanks and sing.

Holy one, can we – dare we – become like you, willing to be swayed when we want to wipe out an entire group of people?

Holy one, can we – dare we – welcome those who speak with the bravery of Abraham, calling even those who seem as powerful as gods to rediscover their better natures?

Holy one, can we – dare we – love like you, forgiving all if there are even a few righteous among them?  

Holy one, how can we ever doubt that there are righteous among those near and far to us, among both our friends and foes?

There is a Love that transcends the deepest love,
that fills the world,
that is ready to heal the world.

O, give thanks and sing.

From Genesis 18:16-23 (Paraphrased):
