Prayer for Renewal

Lord, we are your people,

the sheep of your flock.

Heal the sheep who are wounded,

Touch the sheep who are in pain,

Clean the sheep who are soiled,

Warm the lambs who are cold.


Help us to know

the Father’s love

through Jesus the Shepherd

and through the Holy Spirit.


Help us to lift up that love,

and show it all over this land.


Help us to build love on justice,

and justice on love.


Help us to believe mightily,

hope joyfully,

and love divinely.


Renew us that we may help

share your love to all,

so that they may come alive

to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
