ClergySpirit: Simple Prayer for the World
Original post at http://www.clergyspirit.org/2012/12/simple-prayer-for-world.html
Christmastide/Epiphany is about God's love for the world, manifested in the Word becoming flesh. A few years back, I discovered a prayer at the Cenacle
Retreat House in Houston, Texas. Part of it is below.
Father, hear our prayers for the salvation of the world. Gather your children from the east and west, from the north and south. Grant mercy to all souls that turn away from you. Open our hearts and minds with your light.
We bless and praise you O Lord, for you are our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and the distant seas. We put the world in your hands; fill us with your love. Grant us peace through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
