Reverend Benjamin Hogue

Lutheran Church of the Reformation
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 10/19/2018

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of grace unbounded, the most precious grace You give us is the grace to be ourselves. With Your extraordinary love, You call us to be authentic and whole. Enliven Your spirit within us to proclaim Your goodness in our lives.

Embolden us to continue in Your ways of liberation and peace. Help us to remember the forgotten, hear the silenced, and see the ignored. In all that we do, and in all that we are, make us believers in truth and seekers of justice.

Empower our work to reflect Your mission of reconciliation for the world. Continue to show us paths that will help heal our divisions, share our abundance, and spread Your divine love.

For all this and the blessings to be received this day, we give thanks. Amen.
