Pastoral Prayer for March 26, 2023

So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

God our Father, grant us:

The faith that is not afraid of asking questions;

The faith that seeks in order to find;

The faith that you are unequivocally good.

The hope which will never despair;

The hope that no disappointment can quench;

The hope which in spite of failure will never give in.

The love which is always ready to forgive;

The love which is always eager to help;

The love which is always happier to give than to get.

And so grant that living in faith, in hope, in love, we may live like Jesus.


Independent and United Church of Christ
