Proper 5 – Year A

Great God of all that is…
listen to us, we pray.
We open the newspapers…
and read about corruption.
We turn on the television…
and see death.
We surf the web…
and hear stories of pain.
Help us, we pray.
Help us, we pray!
Help us to hear Christ’s voice –
“She is not dead, but sleeping.”
Help us to hear Christ’s voice –
“Come, follow me.”
Help us to hear Christ’s voice,
“Mercy… not sacrifice!”
Help us to hear Christ’s voice…
and help us to live Christ’s love.
In this time and place.
In all times and places. Amen.
