a reason to be afraid

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Every action that the whore-mongering liar-in chief takes that attacks the rule of law should set off alarm bells. Every violation of every democratic norm by this lying, racist pig should make us more fearful.

#Blotus wants to be a dictator. His every action shows his utter disdain for the Constitution and the rule of law. And his admiration, love, and complete infatuation with Putin and other authoritarian strong men is sickeningly obvious the the entire world.

Our country needs to wake up to the clear and present danger posed by this egotistical and totally immoral slob. Those who still support him need a serious history lesson, and they need it as soon as possible.

a prayer of Mother Teresa

A prayer of compassion from Mother Teresa

Lord, open our eyes
that we may see you in our brothers and sisters.
Lord, open our ears
that we may hear the cries of the hungry,
the cold, the frightened, the oppressed.
Lord, open our hearts
that we may love each other as you love us.
Renew in us your spirit.
Lord, free us and make us one.

Amen 

A prayer for a world divided

 

A Prayer of Hope

Let us pray:

We pray today for God’s world. We pray that it

might discover its human face. We pray for a

world divided.

Divided unequally between the prosperous and

the desperate.

Between those born into privilege and power and

those born into poverty and pain.

Divided unequally between the wealthy and the

The power-filled and the poor.

The greedy and the poor.

The corrupt and the poor.

The poor who always get more than their fairshare

of poverty.

God of life, into your world you come. Into this

divided human community you arrive.

You sit amongst the poor but the wealthy do not

see you.

You walk with the lonely and the abandoned but

those with power cannot hear your footsteps.

You stand among the hungry crowds waiting for

food but the greedy will not share their food with

You live among the powerless, the frightened

and the weak but the corrupt fail to notice you

and continue to exploit you.

God of hope, deliver us all from selfrighteousness

so that whilst we may call the

world towards a different way, we might also, in

your name, become the

answer to the prayers of the silent, suffering,

struggling ones.

God of justice, not just us, grant us the courage

to live as well as proclaim your gospel.

God of life, grant us the energy to serve others in

your name.

God of love, enable and allow us, with

all our weaknesses and fears, to

continue this walk of faith, for faith

and in faith.

a prayer by the Rev David Pargeter, Executive Director, Commission for Mission, Uniting Church in Australia)
