Gracious God, we receive this new day as a gift from you. You invite us to come to your Table of
grace, and you invite us to come to life with you. Guide us to see signs of compassion. You spoke to
the prophets, but your message did not end with them. There is still work to be done, and we pray to
hear your call afresh. Help us to joyfully claim our role, knowing that you provide all that we need
to do our work. As we gather to worship you, guide us to see signs of compassion. Open our minds
to your spirit of wisdom, open our hearts to your spirit of truth that we may love all of your people
with a love that speaks of justice, kindness and radical grace.
In your holy and merciful name we pray, Amen.
