We Can Pray - Weekly Community Prayer


 

In this time of stay home/stay safe, we might ask ourselves, "What Can I Do To Help?"  WE CAN PRAY to the one who surrounds us and surrounds all that is happening.

Nan C. Merrill has written a lovely book entitled “Psalms for Praying” where she takes the words of
Psalms and writes them as prayers. We’ll look at the opening passage of Psalm 41.
“Who among us hears the cry of the poor? How many open their hearts and heed the Call?
The plight of the world is a wound to the very Heart of Love, a scar on our own souls.
Blessed are those who lovingly respond! The Friend who knows all hearts will remember all kindness.
They will find joy, peace and deep fulfillment working in harmony with all who serve toward healing the
needs of this troubled world.”
As we prayerfully read these words let us lift up to the Heart of Love, our Lord, the names and situations
of great need in our world. Let us each be the ones who open our hearts and heed the Call.
