Pause for Prayer

‘Make us Christ-like, O God,

not merely people who name the name of Jesus.

bear within ourselves the cost of sin and

allow new relationships and a new world to be born –

By forgiving others, even as we ask them and you to forgive us.

Earth teach me humility- as blossoms are humble with beginnings.

Earth teach me caring – as mothers nurture their young. ...
