Days of Mercy + + +

“Father most merciful, we confess our faith in Christ
with our words,
Keep us from denying him in our actions.”
(From the Daily Office)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh God,
How am I not being me today?
How am I not being my true self?
How am I denying the Christ who lives in me,
as me, through me?
Oh God,
Keep me from sabotaging all that you created me to be.
Help me to be my best self now!
May I have the patience of God for the mercy towards others
and towards myself.
May I be Christ-like in compassion and justice,
through Jesus Christ, my Lord, I pray. Amen

Day 18 + 40 Days of Mercy + + +


I will not stop caring, whatever the cost.
I will not cease loving, no matter the consequences.
The political winds may howl above me,
scattering people like leaves in a storm,
but I will hold fast to the common ground,
the wisdom that once formed us.
Difference is not a crime. Diversity is not a threat.
Disagreement is not a failure.
Community requires of me what it requires of others:
a commitment to share in the process of justice.
There are no expendable human beings in that process,
only a sacrifice of privilege.
For the sake of the many, I will not stop caring for the few.

Today let us pray for those with physical and mental
challenges and act with loving kindness knowing that
as we strengthen one another we strengthen all
of humanity.
