10.10.10 is part of Micah 2010 a campaign organised encouraging Christians around the world to pray and promise to remember the poor, and to ask our leaders to do the same. Here is the morning congregation of Dundee Methodist Church holding up their promises.
Promises could include - A commitment to pray, to consider how we live and support others, share our promises with our MP and ask our leaders to maintain their commitment to the Millennium Development Goals.
It was a delight to join Rev Mary Patterson as she led the service and celebrated communion.
Micah 6 v8
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
We pray for those who live in poverty,
we cry out for those who are denied justice and
we weep for all who are suffering.
We confess that we have not always obeyed you.
We have neglected your commands and have ignored your call for justice.
We have been guided by self-interest and lived in spiritual poverty.
We remember your promises to fill the hungry with good things, to redeem the land by your mighty hand and to restore peace.
Father God, help us always to proclaim your justice and mercy with humility, so that, by the power of your Spirit, we can rid the world of the sin of extreme poverty.
As part of your global church, we stand with millions who praise and worship you.
May our words and deeds declare your perfect goodness, love and righteousness to both the powerful and the powerless
so that your Kingdom may come on earth as it is in heaven.
