Sharing the congregational prayer we prayed on Sunday in worship at Kaumakapili Church. One of the highlights of the summer has been worshipping with this congregation.
We hear you calling us, loving God, to a life of humility, gentleness, and patience. Keep your call before us in this hour that we may recognize and celebrate our oneness in Jesus Christ. May your Spirit unite us in the bond of peace. Speak to us of the Savior, who bore humanity’s shame that we might learn to bear with one another in love. Draw us to a common faith, in spite of our differences. Lead us into new depths of trust beyond our knowing, and along new pathways of service out-distancing our fears. Amen.
