A reading from Psalm 51
A prayer for this week:
Righteous God, in humility and repentance we bring our failures in caring, helping, and loving, we bring the pain we have caused others, we bring the injustice on society of which we are a part, to the transforming power of your grace. Grant us the courage to accept the healing you offer and to turn again toward the sunrise of your reign, that we may walk with you in the promise of peace You have willed for all the children of the earth, and have made known to us in Christ Jesus. Amen.
