A reflection on the practice of prayer in an election season

Dear People of Grace,

I woke up the other morning with this meditation floating around my head and heart. During this tumultuous season, I think we are being called, even more deeply, to practice our prayer, to share in compassion, and to listen to the Gospel’s call to empty ourselves of the greed and arrogance that feels so pronounced.

Beginning today, I added this collect “For the Human Family” to the first of the services of Morning Prayer:

O God, you made us in your image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Blessings, always,
Stuart
