Prayer:

God, you call us to share your Good News of love, justice and peace with a world in need…

You have gifted us with rich resources from scripture, tradition, reason and experience…

Which have allowed people to develop new ways of listening to the voices of many others, attending to their interests and concerns, connecting with diverse peoples and groups, and engaging them as a people of faith…

We ask your blessing on our digitally-integrated ministries and on the many devices we use to love and serve our neighbors in a changing world.

May they never become distractions from relationships or idols in our hands. May we always remember that your Son, Jesus Chris, is the one true mediator of your love and grace in the wired world. Amen.
