BENEDICTION

POSTLUDE Exultate Jubilate – Gordon Young

WEEKLY PRAYER

 I say to you that listen,  Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 

bless those who curse you,  pray for those who abuse you.             —Luke 6.27-28

God of love, I call to mind my enemies. I summon up your love for them and offer it humbly.

I call to mind those who are hurtful.  I pray for them, that their hearts may be healed, for only wounded people wound others. I call to mind those who abuse me or oppose me. I pray for them, that they may know your blessing.

I call to mind those who do what I see as evil. I pray for them, that their hearts may be brought back to life. May I remember always the mystery that my enemy and I are one; for all are one in you. When I split myself from them, I am no different than when they split themselves from those they reject or condemn. In our condemning we betray our oneness; we wound our own humanity.

Therefore even as I oppose them, may I remember their wound, and honor our oneness. May I see them, even those who are cruel, as your beloved children.

Even as I must oppose people for the sake of justice,  may I stand against their injustice, but not against them; may I stand beside them in your love, even as I struggle to love them.

I pray grateful and trusting that even when I fail you do not curse me, but love me and bless me.

By your spirit in me, help me, O God, to love kindly, to do justice, to walk humbly with you,  in the spirit and company of Jesus.  Amen.
