The Power of Your Energy and Love Through Us Can Change Most Difficult Situations.
By Katherine Harman, December 4, 2011
Dear God of comfort and hope,
The power of your energy and love through us can change most difficult situations
The community that results creates lasting change that builds and grows
But in our extremely busy and stressful lives we often cannot see your power working in us
As we rush through our days, although we know that change takes time;
We look for immediate fixes to our problems
We often ask for the world to change
We look to you to intervene, to step into our lives and take away our pain
We do not see the power of our community, the god that is you and me
During this Advent season we have concerns about money, security and health
Let us take a moment to reflect on these concerns and the people in our lives …
Thank you for the time we have with our community, with our friends and family
Thank you for curiosity and challenge, for compassion and empathy
Thank you for our successes as we address difficult situations, through understanding and patience.
Help us this morning to be open to the word of love and care for each other
Help to open our eyes and our hearts to the comfort and hope we can create for one another
Let us see god and the capacity for change in each of us.
