Guidance in Organizational Decision-Making

Call to Prayer Leader: God’s own word goes forth this day, doing what it will.

All:

Each morning, Lord, fill us with your kindness.

Psalm 90 R: O Lord, you have been our refuge from generation to generation. Before the mountains existed or the earth was born, from age to age, You are God. In your eyes a thousand years are like a single day, they pass with the swiftness of sleep. You sweep away the years as sleep passes at dawn, like grass that springs up in the day and is withered by evening. You lay bare our failings in the light of your presence. All our days wither beneath your glance, and our lives vanish like a breath. Our life is a mere seventy years, eighty with good health, then the thread breaks and we are gone. Teach us to make good use of our days and bring wisdom to our hearts. How long, O Lord, before you return? Show mercy to your servants. Shine your love on each with each dawning day, and gladden all our days. Balance our past sorrows with present joys, and let your servants see the splendor of your work. Let your loveliness shine on us and our children, and bless the work we do; Yes, Lord, bless the work of our hands. Each morning, Lord, fill us with your kindness.

We thank you, O Lord, who are rich in mercy – let us love others as you love us. You are always at work in the world – make all things new through the power of your Spirit. Open our eyes and the eyes of the whole world – to see the needs of our brothers and sisters. You call us today more deeply into your service – make us good stewards of your many gifts. Closing Prayer Leader: God of wisdom and mercy, protect us from all distractions that would keep us from knowing and doing your will in our lives. Give us freedom of spirit to share in this day of planning and hear your voice in our own words and those of our colleagues. You call us into this ministry of service to those you cherish; give us health in mind and body to do your work on earth. Amen.
