hands-that-serve

During Lent and Holy Week, please pray the following Psalm and prayer for our congregation.

Psalm 122 Song of Praise and Prayer for Jerusalem

1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
2 Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem—built as a city that is bound firmly together.
4 To it the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, as was decreed for Israel, to give thanks to the name of the Lord.
5 For there the thrones for judgment were set up, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you.
7 Peace be within your walls, and security within your towers.”
8 For the sake of my brothers and friends I will say, “Peace be within you.”
9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will pray for your good.

Holy One,
As we enter a time of discernment for the future of our congregation, be with us. Grant us ears to hear, hands to willingly share our time and talent, and hearts open to your Spirit. May we meet each other with love and respect. Lead us to know your vision for the house of the Lord, for our service to your people, and for Peace within our brothers and sisters.
Amen
