Christian Unity 2022

Suggested Prayers:
May Your Kindness Fill Our Hearts
We pray for those who live in the midst of injustice.
Encourage us to lift up their voices and strengthen their hope.
We pray for those who continue to perpetuate injustice. 
May your kindness fill our hearts
and make us agents of freedom and peace.
We pray for every institution and person
who stands for justice.
Let us act justly according to your words.
Today we ask you:
O God, hear our prayer and grant us your justice.

In Our Differences Unite Us
We thank you for the many colours, cultures, and customs
that we share in this world.
In our differences, unite us by your love.
Enable us to act together to uphold life
and to make this world a just and peaceful household
for all humanity.
Today we ask you:
O God, hear our prayer and grant us your peace.

Gracious God, You Have Commissioned Us
Gracious God, you have commissioned us
to make our common home a place of justice for all.
In your generous love, you send rain
on the righteous and the unrighteous
and, in Jesus, teach us to love without discrimination.
We confess that we have failed to follow this teaching by:
disrespecting our neighbours;
spreading falsehoods through various social media; participating in the disruption of social harmony.
Our conduct risks making the world a barren field
that no longer brings forth your justice for all of creation.
May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive our sins and lead us to eternal life.
Amen.
