Lord, we are Your people, the sheep of Your flock.
Heal the sheep who are wounded, touch the sheep who are in pain, clean the sheep who are soiled, warm the lambs who are cold, calm the sheep who fear.
Help us to know the Father’s love through Jesus the shepherd and through the Spirit.
Help us to lift up that love and show it all over this land.
Help us to build love on justice and justice of love.
Help us to believe mightily, hope joyfully, love divinely.
Renew us that we may help renew the face of the earth.
