Prayer for the week

Heavenly Father,
we come to you with mixed emotions:
excited at the prospect of time with friends and family,
looking forward to shared meals and shared homes,
anxious about what the future holds.
We come to you celebrating, grieving, joyful and angry
at the life and death we see around us.
We come to you grateful that in all we face
you walk alongside us.
Give us the courage to respond with compassion
to those who are hurting
and to work for justice for those who are oppressed.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
