O Father, we ask you to bless us, and keep us in Your love.
May L'Arche be a true home where the poor in spirit may find life;
a place where those who are suffering may find comfort and peace.
Lord, give us hearts that are open, hearts that are humble and gentle, so we may welcome those you send with tenderness and compassion.
Give us hearts full of mercy that we my love and serve, and where discord is found may we be able to heal and bring peace and see in the one who is suffering the living presence of your Son. Lord, through the hands of your little ones, we ask you to bless us, through the eyes of those who are rejected, we ask you to smile on us.
Lord, grant freedom and fellowship and unity to all the world. and on the day of your coming welcome all people into your kingdom. Amen.
Send your prayer request to Bethany Luzny, director of hospitality and formation at email@example.com and we will have our community pray for you. Please include the nature of your request and time restraints your prayer needs have.
Want to see what our community is all about? We believe that one of the best places for you to experience that is around our dinner table. Thank you for your interest in joining L'Arche Clinton for dinner. Each household eats together nightly at 5 p.m., after which we spend time reflecting on the day through sharing and prayer. Dinnertime is informal – come as you are. Please contact Devin Land, L'Arche Clinton Community Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (563) 243-9035 to make your reservation to share life in one of our homes.
