Prayer from Sunday's Liturgy

October 21, 2016

 

Holy God

 

The story in the stone

 

the light in the glass

 

the silence in the sanctuary

 

 

 

Holy God

 

the gospel of love unfolding

 

the means of grace unconditional

 

the way of truth uncompromising

 

 

 

Holy God

 

the cross at the centre of everything

 

the giving of self through everything

 

the dying to self for everything

 

 

 

Holy God

 

the stone that rolls in the morning

 

the break of the darkness at sunrise

 

the footprint in the grass at dawn

 

 

 

Holy God

 

the eternal community that gathers round these stories

 

the long hope that holds these stories to be true

 

the deep love that trusts these stories will change us

 

 

 

In these ways

 

from our inheritance of faith

 

and our hope for the future

 

may we know you Holy God

 

beyond the wood and stone

 

may we know you

 

shaping community

 

redeeming the world

 

loving neighbour

 

 

 

In these ways

 

where faith is a purpose

 

and love is an intent

 

and grace is a means to others closer into you

 

may our souls find you

 

establishing your house

 

your generation

 

your family

 

 

 

that all that has shaped this building

 

over many centuries

 

plays out still

 

in our living towards each other

 

and the life we share with each other

 

 

 

May these stones

 

be just the echo

 

of the living community you build

 

that worships here

 

but lives everywhere

 

where there is need

 

and a calling

 

and a neighbour

 

 

 

Holy God

 

word of life

 

body of Christ

 

community of faith

 

 

 

In such ways we belong to you

 

and we give thanks

 

 

 

So be it

 

Amen
