Prayer for Pure Hearts

O God of all that is good and just, give us courage to walk the path of faith with integrity and wisdom to rely on you to guide us into the relationships of vital Christian community. We confess our fear of losing what we think gives us purpose. So test us where we think we are strong and strengthen us where we know we are weak. And above all, create in us pure hearts so that we may fully recognize you in the people with whom we interact and fully respond with love in the situations in which we find ourselves today. We offer ourselves to you in the name of Jesus, the way, the truth, the life. Amen
