Prayer for Faith, Hope and Love


 

Prayer for Faith, Hope and Love
Let  us pray for Faith
            That it will be the fruit of right hearing
            That at all times there will be people.
            With an open mind and open  ears
            Who will listen sharply to your Word
            And pay attention to the needs around them
            We pray:
            Let us be  such people.
Let us pray for Hope
          That it will be the fruit of a living faith
          That at all times there will be people
          Growing towards the light
          Continuously filled with courage and never cease being hopeful:
          We pray:
          Let us be such people.
Let us pray for Love
          That she is the fruit of a living faith and hope
          That at all times there will be people
          Never giving up being alarmed
         About the continuing existence of the earth:
                    The care  for animals and entire environment
                    That lend assistance in friendship
                    That abolish loneliness
                    That help working out sorrow and grieve
                    That show sympathy with joy
We pray to Thee, O Lord
Let us recognize one another.
In deeds of Faith, Hope  and above all through Love.
