A prayer for VYLTP, for young leaders

Loving God,

You called a young woman, Mary

To birth your image to the world

And you chose young people to be your first disciples,to embody the first-fruits your kin dom

Give us grace to see, affirm, nurture and restore your image in young people

So that they may create beauty, joy and justice within themselves and others

Especially for the poor and the most marginalized

For the sake of your Christ, Jesus

Who came not to be served, but to serve

And in the power of your Holy Spirit.


Rev. Edwin Arrison,
