Use these liturgical resources in worship this Sunday, October 2
The following prayer is the opening prayer for worship provided with this year’s Peacemaking Offering resources for World Communion Sunday, October 2. This and all of the worship resources can be downloaded.
O God of majesty, as we gather today to worship you, disquiet us and your whole creation with your peacemaking Holy Spirit, quietly insisting, “Know justice, know peace.” As your Son broke bread and gave it to thousands, so call us anew to a peace marked by a just distribution of your abundance, until that day when no one shall hunger nor thirst any more; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord we pray. Amen.
Thank you for your participation in the 2011 Peacemaking Offering. Now more than ever we need to “seek peace and pursue it.”
