Sydney K. Wilde
Remind us again, dear God, that ours are the hands that must do your work. We are the ones who must comfort the sick and lift up the poor. We are the ones who must challenge traditions to bring about justice. Strengthen our resolve, we pray, to live out our faith as doers of good works. Fill us with the spirit, which will give us both courage and strength to move out into the world, and there, to make a difference. By our efforts, may your will be done. Amen.
(delivered at an exchange service with a Baptist Church)
