Prayer Offered for April 10, 2023

Merciful and ever-living God, as a large part of our world celebrates Ramadan, Passover, and Easter these days, may we all reach out in love to our whole world.

May we listen to Your voice in our hearts as we taste the bitterness of others’ affliction, and work to relieve their distress.

May we live our lives as persons of forgiveness and peace.

Gracious God, help us commit ourselves to praying for oppressors everywhere that their hearts may grow in understanding and compassion.

Help us to work for the freedom and liberation of all oppressed peoples, and of the Earth itself.

May all that we do reflect Your love for Your creation in all its diversity and creativity.

We ask this in Your name and in the name of all who desire justice and peace.—AMEN.
