We thank you for your willingness to break into our little world.
Break our obsession with ourselves, the person that we know so well, but have trouble being truthful to.
Shine your light into the darkness, drive the cloud of despair away. Help us to accept your Gospel,
to engage it, to live it, to share it. To walk across the bridge between ourselves and others; to bridge the gap between us and you.
By the power of your Holy Spirit, make us whole people again. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
