In God's Hands - praying in partnership with churches around the world.
Loving God, I offer myself to you.
May my mind think of you,
and my eyes see the needs of others.
May my ears hear the cries of the world
and my voice speak of you.
May my hands work for your reign
and my feet walk on your path.
May my life be used in your service
and my heart love you more than anything else.
May the joy of the Lord be my strength to serve him
all the days of my life.
(Opening worship of the regional meeting of the Methodist Church in Latin America and the Caribbean, 11 May 2002, Panama)
Christ our true God,
risen from the dead,
whose tomb is brighter than any royal hall,
will have mercy on us,
and save us,
for this is a good God who loves us all.
(From a memorial service for Oscar Romero, El Salvador. Living Beyond Our Means, World Student Christian Federation, Geneva, Switzerland.)
