Proper 12 – Year A (Romans 8.26-39)

Your love, God, fills all of creation.
Because we know that, we bring our hopes, our
dreams and our fears to you.
Today, we look deep inside of ourselves,
and recognize all those things for which
we are thankful.
In love, we offer them to you.
(silent prayer)
For all your goodness, God
We give you thanks.

the harms we have caused.
For all your goodness, God
We give you thanks.
Today, we look outside of ourselves,
and realize the need that we see.
It can be overwhelming, God.

to be your hands and your heart
in the world.
Help us, we pray,
to show that nothing can come between you
and your creation.
For all your goodness, God
We give you thanks.
Amen.
