Week 13: Sexuality

"We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome...We all belong to this family, this human family, God's family"

Jesus, we give you great thanks for the gifts of sex and sexuality. Thank you, Lord, for making us for love and intimacy. We pray where there is or has been unresolved harm, trauma, and abuse that you heal us and enable us to ask for help, if needed, to heal from these issues. We ask for a sound and healthy sexuality so that our spirituality may be emboldened and broadened all the more, and all for your glory. In Jesus’ name we ask and we pray, Amen.
