PRAY:

From birth to last breath
From first step to many places
From darkness to light, then to glory
We praise Your Holy Name, oh God!

At the current presence of our life journey,
At this season of pain and suffering
At this time of joy and victory
Thank You for being with us, oh God!

In every second we ignore the needy,
In each time we didn’t stand for justice,
In every hour we show no care at all,
Forgive our iniquities, oh God.

Empower us to embody Your love,
Enlighten us to know how to truly love,
Enrich our experience of loving and being loved
Encourage us to keep the hope, faith, and love.

We pray in the loving name of Christ Jesus, Amen

MEDITATE:

Philippians 1:6, 9-10 (NRSV)
6 I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
9 And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight 10 to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless.
