Prayer Offered for April 18, 2024

In our daily efforts to create more prosperous societies, the progressive rock group, Rush, invites us to lead from our hearts:

And the [ones] who hold high places

Must be the ones to start

To mold a new reality

Closer to the Heart

God of compassion and mercy, You dwell in the deepest recesses of our hearts where You know our dreams and hopes for positive change in our world. Be with us as we work to bring those dreams to life by our actions, forged with courage and creativity, with persistence and patience, until all those seeking a place of refuge and belonging can be assured of their value and their contribution to the ongoing evolution of our human family. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.

(“Closer to the Heart” in A Farewell to Kings by Rush)
