Commitment for Life prayer for January

God of grace,
creator of a world of plenty,
the heavens declare your glory
and the earth your generosity.

In love, you created us
and in your likeness you made us
to be partners in creation.
In greed, we have turned away
and have marred your image of us
to fashion a fragmented world.

Renew us in your vision of wholeness,
that the rich restore wealth to the poor
and the poor share blessings with the rich.
Revive us in our passion for justice,
that the tyranny of profit be quelled
and the whispers of freedom find voice.
Refresh in us our sense of calling,
that we follow Christ in serving others
and live simply with those who simply live.
