Nothing Stands Alone –
A Prayer for Our Community
God, Lord of all creation, lover of life and of everything, Please help us to love in our very small way What You love infinitely and everywhere.
We thank You that we can offer just this one prayer And that will be more than enough, Because in reality every thing and every one is connected, And nothing stands alone.
To pray for one part is really to pray for the whole, And so we do.
Help us each day to stand For love, for healing, for the good, For the diverse unity of the Body of Christ and all creation, Because we know this is what You desire: As Jesus prayed, that all may be one.
We offer our prayer together with all the holy names of God, We offer our prayer together with Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Father Richard Rohr
