Prayer of the Day: God's Gift in the Midst of Violence

By the Web Editors 2-17-2014
We in the midst of out-of-control violence, we in great faith, we in deep vocational call, we in our several anxieties. We — alongside you — in the trembling. This day we pray for freedom to move beyond fear to caring, beyond self to neighbor, beyond protection to growth. That we may be a sign of the steadfastness, that anxiety may not win the day. You are the one who said, “Do not be anxious.” And now we submit to you. Amen. - Adapted from "God's Gift in the Midst of Violence" by Walter Brueggemann
