"And may the gracious care of the Lord our God be ours;
prosper the work of our hands for us!
Prosper the work of our hands!"
Our hands are very busy right now, aren't they? Families, students and teachers getting back to school. Many hands are harvesting the gifts of the earth we will all enjoy throughout the winter. Our hands are busy, Lord, please help us to do it all with you and for you! We pray for all those whose hands may be idle due to illness, injury or the loss of work. We pray for all those whose hands are folded in prayer due to terrible life circumstances and suffering. We look around and can feel so worried and fearful about our world, and yet, know that you, Lord, carry us in your Hands. Help our hands to prosper, sure, but also help us to roll up our sleeves and put our hands to work, helping to heal our hurting world. Love, heidi
