Lord, help us to see that our well-being is inextricably bound to the well-being of our neighbor. Our sorrows are shared. Our longings are shared. Our fears are shared. Enable us also to share compassion, patience, and courage today. Amen.

- From Common Prayer

We thank you, Generous God, for the grace  represented in all we possess. You have filled our lives with abundance and we thank you. May we be Your channels of blessing to those in need. May we be friends of the friendless and companions to the lonely. May we be faithful followers and co-workers, building your Kingdom in this world.

Adapted from a prayer by John van de Laar

Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow human beings throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Through our hands, grant them this day their daily bread; and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy. Amen (Daily prayer of the co-workers of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.)
Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ. Rest your weary ones.Bless your dying ones. Soothe your suffering ones. Pity your afflicted ones. Shield your joyous ones. And for all your love's sake. Amen. (A prayer by Saint Augustine of Hippo) For all who are suffering violence from the hands of broken people. Violence and hatred are a tragic reality in our fallen world. Therefore, may our own hearts be moved so that every day we are makers of peace. Amen. (Adapted from a prayer in a blog by Tim King.)

This is the day that you have made, O Lord. May we rejoice and show others the joy of our salvation! Let them know that we are your followers by the way we love them, especially the lowly, the poor, and the marginalized. Amen.

 
A prayer from Sojourners

I cannot dance, Lord, unless you lead me. If you want me to leap with abandon, you must intone the song. Then I shall leap into love, from love into knowledge, from knowledge into enjoyment, and from enjoyment beyond all human sensations. There I want to remain, yet want also to circle higher still.

A prayer by Mechthild of Magdeburg
For the on-going work of the 5000 Project, the Bromley Borough Food Bank and for Latch
