A prayer after reading Luke 3:1-6 O God, you are a dynamic God, You call us to a dynamic response. You call us to prepare a way. You call us to partner with you, So we might further your restorative work in this world And see positive change continue to unfold in new and meaningful ways. God, you call us. Help us heed that call. May we be open to your inspiration, responsive to your direction, active participants in your movement of love, peace, justice, and healing. May we prepare the way of the Lord. Amen.
