Hebrews 13

Dear God of peace,
teach us to heed and hear all the good and wise instructions concerning life in prayerful community.

May we be present to each other to bless, and never to hurt.

Strengthen our hearts by grace, and show us how to hold on to your truth.

Limit our dependence on the good things of this creation. We pray for help to keep our hearts firmly fixed on the city that is to come.

Finally we pray that you, God of peace,
who brought back from the dead, Jesus,
the good shepherd of the sheep,
by the blood of the eternal covenant,
will make us complete in everything good,
so that we may do your will.
Work in us that which pleases you.
We cannot do this on our own, we admit,
and so we lift our prayers to you,
through your Son, Jesus Christ.

To him be glory, now and forever. Amen.
