Lord God, we come just as we are with the shared brokenness of a fallen world. We’ve become numb and closed our eyes to the needs of others. Connect with us now and wash away our mistakes.
When others hurt us, help us to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back. Give us the wisdom to see that we are not boxed into the limitations that we’ve created for ourselves. Show us the bigger picture, that “sin is indeed always in us, and Godly people feel it; but it is covered” (Martin Luther) in the healing hands of Jesus Christ who takes away the sins of the world.
Lord, with all of our insecurities, You take the bad with the good with or without our apologies. Your love is unconditional. Your love knows no boundaries. Your love is always with us. So, open up our hearts and let the healing truly begin.
