Prayer for the Day:
By the power of your Holy Spirit, O Father, cause your people to be Christ’s presence in the world—even as Jesus is our Immanuel, God with us. Give me a voice to speak his truth, heart, to look compassionately on others, hands to be a healing presence, feet to carry me to the places where your Spirit leads. Keep your Church faithful in service until that day when you claim the victory Jesus won and we shall feast with all your saints in the joy of your kingdom.
