Prayer Over This Place

Mural of Old CentrevilleBy Stephen W. Hiemstra”

Almighty Father, Gentle Son, Spirit of Truth,

In the name above all names

to whom “all authority in heaven and on earth has been given” (Matt 28:18 ESV)

we claim this time and this place for the Risen Christ–

make our time your time,

make our place your place.

In doing so we confess that we are unworthy of the call and

have need for forgiveness–cleanse our hearts and renew a right spirit among us. (Ps 51:10)

For we have been blessed to bless others (Gen 12:1-3) and

can only claim our salvation by extending it to those around us.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

come Lord, come quickly.

May our eyes only see what you would have us see,

may our ears only hear what you would have us hear,

way our voices speak only what you would have us speak.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
