Deliver Us....

Lord, deliver us from our fears.

Deliver us from not seeing our neighbors.

Deliver our tongues from speaking evil words and our words from deceit.

Deliver us from the times we fail to seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you.

Deliver us from not welcoming the marginalized in our midst.

Deliver us from all of those things that keep us from turning to YOU!

Deliver us from the times our praise is not continually on our lips.

Deliver us so that we can "taste and see" that the Lord is good.

Deliver us so that we will hear the cries of the brokenhearted and save the crushed in Spirit.

Deliver us, Oh Lord, so that we hear the call to be your servants sent out into the world.


Lord, open our eyes to see our neighbors.

Open our mouths to speak kindly of our neighbors.

Open our hearts to seek justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you.

Open our lips to praise you continually in this broken fractured world.

Open our hearts to welcome all of your beloved children.

Open our ears to hear you calling and to turn to you alone.

Open our tongues to taste and our eyes to see that you are good.

Open our ears to hear the cries of the brokenhearted and the crushed in Spirit.

Open our ears to hear the call to be your servants sent out into the world

I am linking up with Holly and Testimony Tuesday, Kelly and the Ra Ra linkup, and Jennifer and Tell His Story.
