Prayers in sacred space

Prayers in sacred space

Hope brings us here:
hope of inspiration,
hope of comfort,
hope of enlightenment,
hope of love.

This is the house of hope,
where people come
to find in fellowship
the hope that saves.

Spirit of hope, within us and
among us, restore our faith
in life's promise;
empower us to save the world.

Cliff Reed, We are here, a book of prayers for corporate worship 1992

From the world's strife,
we come to the house of peace;

From victory's pride,
we come to the house of humility;

From defeat's shame
we come to the house of self-respect;

From the world's division,
we come to the house of unity.

Let us repent, give thanks, and worship.

Cliff Reed, ibid.
