Tuesday Prayer for 11/27/12


(inspired by Jeremiah 33:14-16)

One:  Do we dare to hope?
Many:  Do we dare to hope for an unchained, deep justice that seeks renewal instead of revenge;
One:  That seeks healing instead of harm;
Many: That seeks peace instead of punishment?

Many: That seeks courage instead of compliance;
One: That seeks mutual accountability instead of mutually assured destruction?

One:  That seeks generosity instead of greed;
Many: That seeks vulnerability instead of vengeance?
