God of Abraham and Sarah,
we wait with expectant hearts
for the one who has come
and is coming again.
longing for the Good News
and as we wait,
Hear our prayers for those in need, O God.
Mobilize your Church
to be the hands and feet of Christ,
feeding the hungry
in body and spirit,
clothing the naked,
and lifting those living in deep despair.
Hear our prayers for the power-hungry, O God.
Let justice fall down like waters
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Bring the humble to their feet
to call for healing
in a broken world.
Hear our prayers for the prophets
who continue to speak truth to power,
to call your people to obedience,
to boldly answer the call to proclaim the year of the Lord.
Encourage and strengthen them.
Grant them wisdom,
and surround them with a community
that will care for them
and heal the wounds inflicted
by those who do not want to have their greed
May all we are
and all we do
bring glory to you, O God,
pointing your people
to the hope that is to come.
