Light your Candle of Hope (Prayer for Our Neighborhood)

Prayer for Our Neighborhood:

God of this city, we commend our neighborhood to your care, that it may be a safe place for our senior citizens, children and families.  Give the strength of purpose and compassion for others that we may create a community where all are known, special care provided, justice and peace prevail and a watchful eye for our neighbors’ wellbeing that no form of evil may bring harm.   Above all, use us to be a shining light of your love and care for all our neighbors.

In Jesus’ name we pray.   Amen
