God of hope,
You send me out into the world to proclaim the good news of your love and healing.
Help me understand what it means that the kingdom of heaven has come near.
Give me compassion for the harassed and helpless.
-Show me how your reign of love and justice comes creeping into my life
-Show me where you are in the most unlikely places.
-Show me that you are active and at work where I least expect to find you.
-Show me what it means for me to help with the needs around me.
Use me as you transform, heal, and redeem the whole world.
