Weekly Prayer July 5, 2021

Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us.

by Asbury Lafayette on July 05, 2021

This is my prayer, O God of all the nations,
a prayer of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
and sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine;
but other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
and skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
O hear my prayer, thou God of all the nations,
a prayer of peace for their land and for mine.

This is my prayer, O Lord of all earth's kingdoms:
Thy kingdom come; on earth Thy will be done.
Let Christ be lifted up till all shall serve him,
and hearts united learn to live as one.
O hear my prayer, thou God of all the nations;
myself I give thee; let Thy will be done.
Amen

(Lloyd Stone, Georgia Harkness - adapted)
