Pause for Prayer

October 11, 2021

 

A Prayer of Confession

for Indigenous Peoples’ Day

 

 

Have mercy on us, O God.

 

You are the maker of heaven and earth—
yet some claim to discover the land

while others are pushed aside.

 

You are the life of the world—

yet some abuse and exploit your creation
while others hunger and thirst.

 

Your faithful love endures forever—
yet some disregard their promises
while others are betrayed.

 

Your generosity is without measure—

yet some heap up treasure for themselves
while others struggle in poverty.

 

You offer freedom to all in your Spirit—
yet some enjoy the blessings of liberty
while others remain in bondage.

 

You walk in beauty and truth—

yet some destroy and deceive

while others are trampled underfoot.

 

Have mercy on us, O God.
 

Redeem broken promises,
bring justice to this land,

and help us to live in right relationship
with you and one another;

in Jesus’ name we pray.

This next week, The Wired Word highlights the story of an immigrant who was shot in the face 10 days after 9/11 because his assailant mistook him for an Arab he held responsible for the terrorist attack on America. The wounded man eventually forgave the gunman and lobbied the court for a stay of execution in his case.

October 13, Devotional

by Bonnie Marsh

Fall is upon us — a colorful-embracing change of season. A pallet of autumn yellows, oranges and reds slowly manifest across the landscape. Each morning the view out the window at breakfast shows the gradual change in the colors — the yellowing of pine needles, the blush of the crimson maple, the golden haze of the aspen, and bronzing of the bracken ferns. The colors are a visual delight, warm the heart, and beckon the garden gloves, rake, yard waste bags, and ibuprofen. More
