A prayer for a church community

Heavenly Father

Enable this church to do your will
Make it vulnerable that it may speak with calm humility;

Make it outward looking that it may care deeply
Make it a community of peacemakers and bridge builders
In the midst of turbulence let the church make space
for the hearing of your still small voice.

  1. Hi Annette, My name is Nick. I was asked at short notice to say the prayers at church tomorrow and thought I would try to find some inspiration on the web and found your blog. I go to St. Thomas’ Church ( now called The Darling Street Church) in Rozelle Sydney. Its an Anglican Church only possibly a little less liberal than St James although very compassionate. I hope you dont mind but Ive borrowed your prayer for church community which is what I would like my church to be like. God bless you in your work.

    Best wishes
