A Prayer

Most gracious Creator, who through the birth, death, and ressurection of Christ brought us redemption, and through the infilling of Your Spirit brings us life daily, hear our prayers for Terri. She is your creation. She is of value. She is loved.

Lord God, we pray that Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. We pray that hearts, minds, and souls will be opened to You. We pray that those who traffick in the culture of death will be corrected, and seek your forgiveness. We pray that each of us, no matter how innocent we are of this crime, will not feel smug or holy, but that we will be on guard to erradicate the sin in our own lives.

Mostly, Jesus, we pray that you will hold Terri in your arms as she lays un-hydrated and un-fed. We pray, Holy Spirit, that you will engulf Terri's family and friends in the fullness of your love and comfort.

It is so easy to pray for our will, and offer suggestions of how this should be rectified. Let us rest in the knowledge that we can only pray that Your will be done.

Lord, have mercy.
